Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A-. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics 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.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a positive grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B in that area. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis.

This nursing home administered the vaccine to 94.69496 percent of its residents, which is better than the average nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we graded was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this category. In our short-term care category, we try to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Moving on the last category of inspections, this ended up not being this nursing home's weakest grade. Inspection grades are based on a nursing home's recent government inspection reports. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were category J through L deficiencies. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to place resident health or safety in imminent harm or jeopardy. Overall, this inspection certainly could be worse.
