Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also earned first-rate health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of A. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so favorably is that it was awarded a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, long-term care ended up being its second highest category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A-. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
