Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means this facility avoided the more significant categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's rock-bottom short-term care grade where it received a lowly F. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy.

In addition, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of long-term care. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed.

This nursing home vaccinated 90.661476 percent of its residents. This is multiple points less than what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
The next category we analyzed was nursing, in which this facility was given a rock bottom score in this category also.
