Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with a grade of A+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to point out that this facility was given strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second best score. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 94.1704 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
