Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor dings aren't the end of the world.
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. The nursing grade consists of quite a few components, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
