Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a strong nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In that category, we gave it an A-. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Additionally, this nursing home also received favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we gave it one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.58678 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes.
