Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving residents more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second best category is its long-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of B-. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Given its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
This nursing home did not receive a favorable inspection score. We gave it a grade of just just D in this category. Inspection ratings relate to a nursing home's government inspections. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 26 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
