Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its inspection grade. This score is far better than the facility's overall score. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to the category of long-term care, we awarded this facility a grade of A- in that area. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a dangerous ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
