This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's third best category is long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 99.16943 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Moving on to the fourth category, we awarded this nursing home a D in our nursing category. This is the facility's least impressive category rating. Our nursing grade features many factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
