Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid facilities that had a long list of deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.
