Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its favorable overall score, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
