Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility fared even better in the area of inspections which is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. We gave it an A- for this category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor dings aren't something to panic about.

This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given an impressive long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category with a score of B. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.3064 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Our final category is nursing, in which we gave this nursing home a grade of C in this area. Our nursing grade includes a variety of data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.
