Registered Staff Hours
On top of earning a great overall score, this facility also received an elite nursing grade. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an A. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses were with patients, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
This nursing home also excelled in inspections. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that category, which is one of our highest grades. This is one of the few nursing homes with an overall grade in this range which received multiple category grades this high. Inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
