Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of A. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. There are numerous datapoints within this grade. Most of these factors are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality
The next most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a C. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated only 40.59829 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Our last category is short-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a grade of C in this category. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms 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. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
