Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this area.

Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care score. This is not one of our better scores. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 88.63637 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
In the final category of inspections, we gave this facility a D for our inspection category. This proved to be this facility's weakest category. We take a weak score in this category very seriously. Inspection ratings weigh many items found on the nursing home's inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the reports, this is typically a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This usually signifies that a bad track record spanned several years.
