Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home earned even higher marks in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it one of our highest scores in that category with an A. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the number of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
This facility also excelled in inspections. We gave it an A- for that category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and 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 safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
