Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
We want to point out that this place received a much better grade for long-term care than it did overall. In fact, we gave it one of our best grades in that category with an A. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.14815 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility just a D for our short-term care grade. This is well below average in this category. In determining these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. It looks like this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
The last category we assessed was nursing. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is an abysmal score. This is clearly a significant disappointment. Our nursing category analyzes quite a few subcategories, most of which are based on levels of 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-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
