Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities second most favorable area was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this category. In the category of long-term care, we look at the quantity of services provided by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 80.841125 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
