Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not deem 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.

This facility was given a strong long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B.

The nursing score consists of quite a few subcategories, but the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing.
