Registered Staff Hours

Our nursing grade analyzes quite a few datapoints, however, the main one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this facility also received favorable short-term care grades this year. Indeed, we gave it one of our stronger scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our short-term care ratings are important for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Turning the last category of government inspections, we gave this facility a grade of C for this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. This facility had 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were category J through L deficiencies. This means that inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to place resident safety or health in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
