Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.53086 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The last category we scored ended up being this facility's worst area. However, even in its weakest link we still gave it an acceptable grade of C for our nursing category. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Finally, although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic.
