Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
While we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to note its decent inspection reports in recent years. We awarded it a somewhat respectable score of B- in that category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. When computing our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This facility offers an impressive 5.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which more than an hour of those were provided by registered nurses. Registered nurses are highly trained nurses. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as minimizing major falls. This place performed admirably in this metric. Avoiding major falls is typically an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility offers enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
