Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. We weren't able to track down deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in long-term care. We awarded them one of our most impressive scores in that category, with a score of A. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 86.111115 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is short-term care, which was this nursing home's weakest area. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is certainly a major concern. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is more often than not a solid assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we discovered that this place offers fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home.
