Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care grade. Short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed as well in this area. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a very good long-term care grade this year, with a grade of B-. Although this isn't as good as a few of its other category grades, this is still an acceptable rating in that area. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's personal care instead of the highly skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.31507 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable statistic. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
