Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this place'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 significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

One of this facility's more respectable category scores was in the area of long-term care. This ended up being its second most favorable category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 97.66764 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
