Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than its overall score. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate 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
Another strength of this nursing home is its very strong score in long-term care. We awarded them one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a grade of A-. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 49.377594 percent of its patients. This is a few points below what we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
