Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in this area, with a grade of A+. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. 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 dominant long-term care grade. We awarded them one of our strongest grades in that category, with a grade of A. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably 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. There are several subcategories within this area. Many of these subcategories reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a patient more often.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst area is short-term care, which is the last area we scored. For this area, we gave this facility a D. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. 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 statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
