Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
This nursing home also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the facility's government inspections. We awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies.

Long-term Care Quality
The third category we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received a favorable long-term care score, with a grade of B in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of B-. While this is its weakest category grade, this is still not a major area of concern. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most important for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
