Registered Staff Hours
With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this facility excelled in inspections, where it earned an A. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this facility received a superb grade of A- in our long-term care area. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place.
