Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for its inspection grade. This score is far better than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor dings are not the end of the world.
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. Our nursing score is largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road grade in the area of short-term care, with a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more important for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final category, this nursing home received a respectable long-term care score of C. Our long-term care grade assesses a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility gave the vaccine to 98.9011 percent of its residents, which is an above average figure. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
