Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home really excelled in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Not many nursing homes performed better in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive.

Facilities that do well in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services.

This nursing home vaccinated 96.296295 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes.

Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
