Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our best scores in that area, with a grade of A. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this area. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 97.482834 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. When determining our nursing grades, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving residents more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in that area. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
