Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we did give it an excellent score in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of 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. Despite this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable report.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest area turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a C. In the category of long-term care, we focus on the amount of care offered by a facility, as opposed to more medically-intensive services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home provided the vaccine to only 68.86447 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
