Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received first-rate health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in this area, with a grade of A. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

An additional quality feature for this facility is that it was awarded an impressive long-term care grade. Indeed, this turned out to be its second best category score. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a reliable method to minimize negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
