Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. It does not appear that we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other strengths is its top-shelf long-term care grade. It received one of our more impressive grades in that category, with a grade of A. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. The nursing rating includes several subcategories, however, the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated was short-term care, is this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. This was one of just a couple of weak links in a quality profile. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.3 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
