When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This nursing home also excelled in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Very few facilities fared better in this category. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists.

Long-term Care Quality
Our third area we looked at was long-term care, where this facility received an F. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.354836 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
The final category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it an F in this category. This pulled down this nursing home's overall grade quite a bit. For nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home had 7 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines of more than $100,000. This usually means that a nursing home's bad performance spanned multiple years.
