It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Finally, we looked at this nursing home's inspection rating This did not end up being one of this facility's better areas. We gave it a score of C in this category. This isn't a horrible grade in this category. It simply wasn't as strong as some of this nursing home's other category grades. Inspection ratings are tied to several data points located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This facility had 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that it dodged the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
