Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well overall, this nursing home received a very good inspection report this year as well. For this reason, it received one of our better grades in this category with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 14 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an B+. There are a variety of criteria included in this grade. Most of these factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, this facility also was given favorable short-term care grades this year. In fact, we gave it one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a score of B+. Short-term care ratings are crucial for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is long-term care, where this facility received a grade of B. This nursing home didn't end up having any noticeable weaknesses. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 87.5 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
