Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a nursing score which is better than its overall grade. We gave this facility an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning a resident more frequently.
This nursing home actually earned a solid inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that category with a B-. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated was long-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is a fair grade in this category. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.53086 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
