Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with an A. This is a much better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection grades are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.431816 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. It received a lowly F for this area. Despite several solid grades in other areas, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we would like to to make sure you are aware. Short-term care grades are vital for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
