Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a strong nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a score of A for our long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.51923 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Nursing scores are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing 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 good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category. Short-term care grades are vital for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
