Registered Staff Hours

Inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was long-term care, in which this facility was given a poor grade in this area as well. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the vaccine to only 36.904762 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
