Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also received top notch inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in this category, with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a score of A- for our long-term care score. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 95.34884 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. There are a number of datapoints within this category. Many of these factors relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning residents even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
