On top of earning a great overall score, this facility also received an elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an A-. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
In addition, this nursing home also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the facility's government inspections. We gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our top scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
