Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received a much better grade for nursing than it received overall. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We weighed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with residents, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning a resident at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded them a grade of B+ in that category, which is one of our more favorable scores. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We would like to have more data for this nursing home. Without the deficiency related data, it was a challenge to really assess it in the area of inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is long-term care, which proved to be this facility's least impressive area. It received a lowly F in this category, which is clearly a major concern. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 93.71069 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
