Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this very important category. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home performed well in the area of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- for that area, which happens to be one of our most favorable grades. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 93.86667 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded a strong short-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area with a score of B. Short-term care grades are often employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home was awarded a decent nursing score. While this is not nearly as good as several of its other grades, this is truly not a bad grade. Our nursing category weighs many subcategories, most of which are based on nursing hours. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
