Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a solid grade in the area of long-term care, with a grade of B-. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the amount of care offered by a nursing home, rather than more sophisticated services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.58357 percent of its residents, which is better than the average nursing home. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Moving on to the next area, this nursing home received a C for short-term care, which is generally a decent rating. With our short-term care rating, we strive to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
