Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A+ in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.
Among its many impressive grades, this nursing home earned an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it an B in that category. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to another strength for this facility, we gave them one of our better scores in our long-term care category as well, with a grade of B. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.81584 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was short-term care. We gave this facility a D for short-term care, leaving this as the facility's least impressive grade. Our short-term care grade is typically used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, we learned that this place provided less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.7 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
