Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing actually turned out to be its best category. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a patient more often.
We also wanted to emphasize this nursing home's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
