Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
This facility received a short-term care grade which is stronger than its overall score. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in this area. This helped its overall profile quite a bit. Our short-term care grades are important for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. 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.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B-. When computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we had a generally positive view of this facility's recent inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
Our last category is long-term care, in which we awarded this facility a C in this area. In crafting our long-term care grades, we look at the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to only 90.88729 percent of its residents. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
