Registered Staff Hours

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an C. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory.

This facility's next highest category was its short-term care score, where it received a C. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more important for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

The final category we scored was long-term care, which proved to be this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 83.67347 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be several points below what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
