Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this place also earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our best scores in that area, with a grade of A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

This nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Only a select group of facilities performed better in this area.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we graded is long-term care. This facility was awarded an above average long-term care score, with a grade of B in the area. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. 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 a remarkably low figure.
The next category we graded ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still gave it an acceptable grade of B- for our nursing category. Our nursing grade is based on a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This place averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.
