Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for its inspection grade. This is far better than its overall rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had positive view of this nursing home's recent inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a solid score in the area of long-term care, with a C. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 93.548386 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be slightly lower than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
