Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for our short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is often employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
This nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections. We gave it an A for that category, which is one of our best grades. This is one of the few nursing homes with an overall score in this range which received multiple category grades this high. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed was long-term care, in which this facility was awarded a grade of B-. Even though this proved to be its poorest category score, this is still a middle of the pack score. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients.

We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 98.78788 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital.
