Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, this facility earned a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Short-term care scores are important for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
