Registered Staff Hours
On top of being an elite nursing home overall, this facility performed well in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Very few nursing homes performed as well in this area. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it was given a favorable long-term care score. In fact, this wound up being its second best category score. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. 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. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the average nursing home.
