Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in that area with a grade of A+. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale.

After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
