Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection scores weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
