Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned a very favorable inspection score. In this area, we awarded this facility a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
This nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing, where it earned an B. Nursing scores are primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a resident more frequently.
