Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon 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. The nursing score weighs a handful of datapoints, however, the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy.

Long-term Care Quality
Our next category is long-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a C in that category. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's personal care instead of the highly skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 65.57377 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit below average. Nevertheless, this place 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 an impressively low number.
