Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in nursing. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. In calculating our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided 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 frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a decent grade in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our long-term care grade focuses on a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 81.547615 percent of its patients, which is a bit of a concern. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, this facility was awarded a grade of C for short-term care, which is a respectable grade. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
