Registered Staff Hours

These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down deficiency data for this nursing home. We would like to have more information about this facility. Without complete deficiency data, it was challenging to fully assess it in this area.
This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable short-term care grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most important for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 3.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of just D. We wanted to point out this possible weak link, but you shouldn't focus exclusively on one bad category either. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's 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. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
