Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B- for our inspections rating. This score is better than the facility's overall score. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B-. Our nursing score assesses several factors, however, the most important one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. According to its CMS reports, this place provided an average of 5.9 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Approximately one quarter of this care came from registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. Both of these figures are higher than average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these datapoints. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this datapoint. This is often a reliable indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients more frequently.
