Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an A-. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a patient even once per day.

Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

The last category we graded was long-term care. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is an abysmal grade. You shouldn't necessarily disregard a facility as a result of a single bad category though. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 98.24561 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
