Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with an A. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite.

Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally favorable view of this facility's recent inspections.

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care score and that actually wound up as its second most favorable score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this nursing home provided the vaccine to a relatively low 73.201 percent of its patients, which is slightly concerning.
