Registered Staff Hours
We also would like to point out that this nursing home has received nearly flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an A in this area. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to note the fact that this facility was given a dominant score of A- in our long-term care category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping 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.
