Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent nursing grade. We gave them an A in this category. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. We believe that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is long-term care, turned out to be this facility's weakest category. We awarded this facility a D in that category. This was one of just a couple of weak links on a quality report card. Facilities that do not fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 60.48387 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit below average. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
