Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our nursing score is largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a resident even once per day.

The next category we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home one of our higher grades in this category, with a grade of B. Even though this is not as strong as a few of its other grades, it is still a perfectly acceptable grade. In calculating these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. It does not look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
