Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave it an A+. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
This facility performed well in the area of nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our best grades. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses spend with residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning patients even once per day.

We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists.

However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.
