Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home 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 place 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety.

In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 50.746265 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.
