Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially would like to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this area. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it was awarded an impressive long-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.42693 percent of its residents. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics.
