Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its strong overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for inspections. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, this ended up being this nursing home's second strongest category grade. In that area, this facility received a grade of A. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services.

In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The last category we assessed ended up being this facility's worst area. However, even in its worst category we still awarded it a decent grade of B- for nursing. There are quite a few criteria within this area. Most of the data points reflect nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients more frequently.
