Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of A- in the short-term care category. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
This nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with a score of B+. Our inspection ratings are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's inspections. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. In calculating a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored was long-term care, proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this category. This really is one of just a couple of dings in an otherwise impressive profile. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated a relatively low 70 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
