Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
In addition to performing well overall, this facility earned an excellent short-term care rating. In fact, we gave it an A in that area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Adding to its impressive category grades, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Not many nursing homes performed as well in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to its first-rate resume, this facility also received an excellent long-term care score, with a grade of A-. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.08029 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The final category we rated was nursing, in which this facility was given a B-. While this proved to be its least impressive category grade, this is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. The nursing rating weighs a number of factors. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
