Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall score, we awarded this facility an A- for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
This facility received high grades in the category of nursing as well. In fact, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an B-. We analyzed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most nursing homes. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.

The last area we analyzed is long-term care, which was this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 88.62275 percent of its patients. This is significantly below what we expected. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
