Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of A+. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
This nursing home performed well in the area of nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a middle of the pack grade in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In determining our long-term care grades, we analyze the assistance with daily living received by a facility's residents. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 86.62421 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5 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.
