Registered Staff Hours
On top of faring well overall, this facility earned nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was dominant in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
