Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A. Few facilities fared better in this category. In calculating our nursing scores, we weigh both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded impressive marks in the area of short-term care as well. As a result, we gave it one of our most dominant scores in that category with a score of A-. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the last area, this nursing home was given a decent long-term care grade. While this isn't as impressive as several of its other category grades, this is still not a major area of concern. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility provided the vaccine to a relatively low 55.839417 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
