Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
In addition to earning a strong overall grade, this facility fared well in our short-term care category. We awarded it an A for that category. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
This facility also performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that area with an A-. Few facilities with an overall score in this range performed this well in multiple categories. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

This was one of just a few weak links in an otherwise impressive report card. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important.

We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 98.46154 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes.
