Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its great overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

We discovered that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
The final category we looked at was nursing, where this nursing home was awarded a B+. This wrapped up a very impressive profile. Not many facilities earned a B+ or higher in each of our categories. We assessed the licensure of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this area. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
