Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in that area with an A+. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also excelled in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we gave it a score of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.75961 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
The final area we assessed is nursing. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is clearly a major disappointment. The nursing grade is based on a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
