Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this area. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Adding to its strong performance in other areas, we gave this facility an B+ for nursing. When determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are seeing residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility 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 avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient more frequently.

Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the last area, we gave this facility a D in our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's weakest category rating. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 95.77465 percent of its residents, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
