Registered Staff Hours
To go along with a favorable overall grade, we gave this place an A+ for our inspection category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not 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
An additional reason we assessed this facility so favorably is that it was awarded an A+ long-term care score. This is just about as strong as it gets in this area. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.55072 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
