Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among its many high-end scores, this nursing home was given a top-shelf long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in that category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
