Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

The last category we rated was long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is obviously a major concern. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 71.428566 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected.

With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
