We gave it a B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. Our inspection grades are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure.

With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric.

These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home.

With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
