The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
This facility's second best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. Nursing grades are largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
