Registered Staff Hours
In addition to having a decent overall grade, we also wanted to point out that this facility received favorable nursing marks this year. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. This proved to be the facility's top score. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients at least once a day.
This nursing home also earned favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this area. Our long-term care grade focuses on a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.83721 percent of its residents, which is an above average figure. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final category we scored. Sadly, it received an F in this category. Despite some solid scores in other categories, this score is still of a concern so we felt obligated to draw your attention to it. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With a score in this range in this category, we weren't surprised to learn this facility was below average in many staffing areas we looked at. It provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
