Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.
Building on its strong performance in other categories, we gave this facility an B+ for our nursing rating. Our nursing grade assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving patients more often.
