Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Our inspection grades are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's next best category was long-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this category, it still fared somewhat badly. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 77.14285 percent of its patients, which is a bit of a concern. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
