Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing rating weighs quite a few components, however, the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning residents at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility performed well in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of A- for that area, which happens to be one of our most dominant grades. Short-term care grades are commonly used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nursing homes with higher scores in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a solid score in that category, with a B-. While this isn't on par with several of this nursing home's other scores, it is nevertheless not a poor grade. Our long-term care scores are more important for individuals in need of more traditional services associated with activities of daily living. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
