Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's best category grade came in short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this facility an B-. In determining our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below average. Lastly, although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric.

We also found that this facility has received favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was long-term care. For this category, we awarded this facility a B-. Our long-term care grades are more critical for patients needing more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.05882 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
