When computing a facility's nursing score, we consider the amount of time nurses are with residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Among this nursing home's alarming grades was an F for its inspection rating. Typically, this means we found some major red flags on its inspection reports. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was assessed 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we would like to point out that this place received large government fines recently amounting to more than $100,000. This usually signifies that a bad track record has been an issue for multiple years.

We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 82.127655 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

The next category we rated is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score.

Based on its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either.
