Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it earned an A+ in short-term care. This is as good as it gets in this area. In forming these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we gave this facility an A- for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing grade is based on a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is long-term care. This facility received an above average long-term care rating in our assessment, with a C. Although this wasn't nearly as dominant as some of its other scores, this is still a decent grade for that area. Our long-term care ratings are essential for patients looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
