Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Adding to its profile, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 96.07843 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
