Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
We also wanted to note that this facility earned an impressive grade of B in nursing. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The next highest category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category was long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. It received an F in this category. Despite some decent grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless of a concern so we would like to to draw your attention to it. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 95.87156 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
