This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Washington in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a patient more frequently.

Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated just 80.208336 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
The final category we assessed is inspections. This facility did not receive positive inspections in recent years. In fact, we had to give it an F in this category. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection grade. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we also want to point out that this nursing home was assessed large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This usually signifies that a poor performance spanned multiple years.
