Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.94737 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In addition, this nursing home also earned excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with an A-. Inspection scores are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing rating analyzes a handful of subcategories, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This place averages 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a resident at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a grade of B- for this category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
