Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in this category, with a B. This turned out to be the facility's second highest score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services.

While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
