Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. We weighed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home.

Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable statistic. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
