Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection grades are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B+ in this area, which happens to be one of our higher scores. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 94.70405 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
