Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility performed even better in our inspections category which is associated with the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A for this category, which is one of our best grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other strengths is its high-end long-term care score. It received one of our better scores in that area, with a score of A. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 97.90576 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this facility also received favorable short-term care scores this year. In fact, we awarded it one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a grade of B. Short-term care grades are meaningful for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The final area we looked at was nursing. We gave this facility a decent grade in this area, with a B-. Even though this isn't as strong as several of its other grades, it is still nothing to be ashamed of. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
