Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.248116 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We analyzed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home provides 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home 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
Moving on to our last category, this facility received a respectable short-term care grade. Although this is not as elite as many of its other scores, this is still nothing to be ashamed of. Our short-term care ratings are vital for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 3.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
