Registered Staff Hours
In addition to earning a strong overall score, this facility performed well in our nursing category. We awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. When calculating a facility's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
In addition, this nursing home also earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with an A-. Our inspection scores are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's government inspections. Places that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality
In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we gave them one of our stronger grades in that area, with a grade of B. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 62.45847 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat below what we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care. We gave this nursing home one of our higher scores in that area, with a B. This facility ended up being very solid in all areas we analyzed. Short-term care scores are important for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
