Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. Its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it a grade of A+. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. We weren't able to track down deficiency data for this facility. We would like to have more information about this facility. Without having access to the deficiency data, it is challenging to grade this nursing home in this category.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's better category grades was in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually performed better than most facilities in this category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
