Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's overall score was propped up by the fact that it has received favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in this area, with a B+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given an impressive short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave them a B+ in that category, which is one of our better. Short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned an A+ nursing rating. This is as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing score is largely based on a nursing home's 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 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care. This facility was given a grade of C in this area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
