Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A-. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our long-term care grade is generally used to assess a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to just 90.25845 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
