Registered Staff Hours

Nursing scores are primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a resident more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this area. In forming our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
