Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility also earned an A+ inspection score. This score is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a grade of A- for our short-term care score. Our short-term care scores are vital for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a favorable long-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B in this category. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.445984 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The final area we scored was nursing, in which this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. This facility proved to be very solid across the board. Nursing grades are largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
