Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place ended up being a great nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
In addition, this facility received high marks in the area of nursing. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Our nursing rating weighs a number of datapoints. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient more frequently.

Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
