Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received a favorable short-term care score this year. We gave them a strong grade in that area, with a grade of B+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score and was a boost to its overall profile. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. The nursing rating includes a handful of components, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final category, we gave this facility a grade of D for the area of long-term care. This is the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Unfortunately, this grade hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal 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 residents. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
