Registered Staff Hours
While we were down on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B for our nursing rating. When determining our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place 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 frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a resident more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this category. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
