Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this nursing home a poor overall grade, we actually gave it a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a B-. This was at least better than its other category scores. We assessed the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in determining our rating in this area. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is a more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection grades are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports.
