Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
The next best category we gave this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a C. In our long-term care grade, we assess the quantity of care provided by a facility, along with a few qualitative metrics. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 65.28497 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
