Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
This facility earned a favorable short-term care score this year. We awarded them a strong grade in that area, with a B. This is a better grade than the facility's overall score and was a boost to its overall profile. Short-term care scores are meaningful for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
We also awarded this nursing home a B- for our inspections rating. This is more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. There are a host of datapoints within this grade. Most of the subcategories are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning residents even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is long-term care. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the highly 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 number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 90.243904 percent of its residents. This is quite a bit below what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
