Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this facility an A-. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we gave this facility a grade of A- for inspections. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was assessed 5 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 the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

This area is considered to be a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff.
