Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other accomplishments is its dominant long-term care score. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a score of A. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Although this is not quite as impressive as a few of its other category grades, this is truly not a major area of concern. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This place provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most facilities. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
