This nursing home earned a nursing rating which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average score of B in this category. There are many datapoints within this area. Many of these factors relate to staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving residents more often.
This nursing home also received favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B. Our inspection grades are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent government inspections. Places that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their 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 severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this area. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our next category, we gave this facility a D in the area of long-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category rating. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were not able to locate information on vaccination rates. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
