Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving an elite overall rating, this nursing home received an A+ inspection score. This score is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. 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.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Nursing grades are largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home.

This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.76744 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.
