Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in nursing. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also performed favorably in the category of short-term care, with a very impressive grade of A- in this category. In determining these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

The third area we analyzed is long-term care, where this facility received a grade of C in this category. With our long-term care rating, we weigh the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, as well as a handful of quality datapoints. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 98.13664 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The final category we looked at is inspections. This wasn't one of this nursing home's stronger areas. We gave it just a D in this category. Since this data is collected by government inspectors, we tend to take this one very seriously. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 11 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
