Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a relatively impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our more favorable scores in that category with a B+. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. We weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without complete information regarding deficiencies, it is challenging to fully evaluate the place in this area.
Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only received a D for its long-term care grade, which was actually one of its higher category grades. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
