Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to this facility's list of accomplishments, it also was awarded a superb long-term care score. We awarded them an elite strong of A- in this area. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing rating is largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last area, this facility was awarded an acceptable short-term care grade. Even though this wasn't as impressive as some of its other scores, this is truly a middle of the pack score. Short-term care grades are often used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
