Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. Nursing scores are mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a C in this area. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's worst category was long-term care, which is the last category we looked at. For this category, we gave this facility a D. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.45504 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
