Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't take any chances. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
