Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a first rate facility overall, this place also performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 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 facility the country 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 having a policy of turning residents at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.71795 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we scored was short-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This was this facility's worst category. In our short-term care score, we seek to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
