Registered Staff Hours
In addition to earning a great overall score, this nursing home also received an elite nursing grade. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
In addition, this facility also earned top notch health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with an A. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.

In crafting our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest category is long-term care, which is the final area we scored. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. We want to to point out this potential weakness, but you shouldn't over-emphasize a single weak category either. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 90.654205 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
