Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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.

We also awarded this facility an impressive score in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this area, which happens to be one of our more favorable grades. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 87.376724 percent of its residents, which is a bit below what we expected.

It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
