Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it an impressive grade of A- in this area. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B+. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our rating in this area. 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 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility was awarded a very positive short-term care grade, with a B+ in this area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was long-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. Of course, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.916664 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
