Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
We also wanted to note that this nursing home received an B+ in our nursing category. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded its third best category score in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a decent grade. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed is long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is clearly very disappointing. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.18033 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
