Registered Staff Hours
We also want to note that this facility excelled in our nursing grade. We gave them an A+ in this area. We assessed the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning residents even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
An additional reason we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ short-term care score. This is simply as good as it gets in this area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
