Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection score. Inspections is its best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded an impressive long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category with a grade of B. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.4911 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Turning to the final category, this facility was awarded a respectable nursing score of B-. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed.
