Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also received an elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. We assessed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning patients at least once a day.
In addition, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.
