Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities next most favorable area was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. Our long-term care scores are more important for those in need of more conventional assistance associated with personal care. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 92.018776 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
