Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility also earned top notch health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category, with an A+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was given an impressive long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that area with a score of B. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities third most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this area. Our short-term care grades are important for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
The next category we rated was nursing. This nursing home received a grade of B- in the category. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.
