Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with an A. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a favorable score in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B+ in that area. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 78.94737 percent of its patients. This is a bit less than we were hoping for. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
