Registered Staff Hours
We would like to point out that this facility's nursing grade exceeded its overall grade. This facility earned a B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our nursing score features a number of datapoints. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's better category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this area. Our short-term care scores are probably more meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. Our inspection grades are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's worst area was long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category. In spite of some solid grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless concerning so we wanted to make a note of it. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid figure. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
