Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A- for our nursing score. There are many subcategories within this grade. Most of the datapoints are tied to staffing levels. 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Building on its quality profile, this facility also received favorable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the third area, this facility also received a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. With our short-term care rating, we try to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational 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. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B- for the area. Long-term care grades are commonly used to score a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated just 89.69697 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
