Registered Staff Hours
In addition to earning a strong overall grade, this nursing home performed well in our nursing category. We gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. The nursing rating consists of several subcategories, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it received a very positive short-term care score. In fact, this ended up being its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies.

This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the last category, this facility was awarded a grade of B- for long-term care, which is generally an acceptable rating. In our long-term care assessment, we weigh the volume of care provided by a facility, along with some quality metrics. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very solid datapoint. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
