Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we gave this facility an A for short-term care. In calculating these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility 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 considered the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
In addition, this nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with a score of A. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility vaccinated 98.305084 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Finally, this place 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 number.
The final area we rated is nursing, where this facility was given an A-. This rounded out an elite profile. Few nursing homes earned an A- or higher in every single category. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day.
