Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility earned an A+ inspection grade. This score is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't 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.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a strong long-term care grade. In fact, this ended up being this nursing home's second strongest category score. In that category, we gave this facility a score of A. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 89.79592 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
