Our inspection scores are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this facility. Without having access to the deficiency related data, it ended up being a challenge to grade the place in the area of inspections.

This nursing home also was awarded an impressive long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B in this area.

In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

While this isn't quite as elite as many of its other category grades, this is still an acceptable grade in that area. Nursing scores are mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, while this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures.
