Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned first-rate inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best scores in that category, with a grade of A+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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 facility also received a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this area. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients.

The next category we looked at was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a C. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The last area we scored was nursing. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that area. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are with residents as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a resident more frequently.
