Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Without all of the information regarding deficiencies for this facility, it is challenging to fully assess the place in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its elite short-term care score. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a score of A. Short-term care ratings are critical for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 7.3 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The next area we analyzed was this facility's weakest category. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of C in nursing.

This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed.
