Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home performed even better in our inspections category which is associated with the nursing home's recent inspections. We awarded it an A for this area, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 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 CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a score of A- for our short-term care score. In our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

The final category we scored was long-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B. This facility did not end up having any weak links. When facilities 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.

This facility vaccinated 98.47716 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
