Registered Staff Hours

Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

The next area we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable short-term care score, with a B+ in the area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The last area we looked at is this facility's weakest area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of C for our nursing category. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
