Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B-. The nursing grade weighs a number of datapoints. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Finally, our nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
