This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This nursing home's short-term care score appears to be one of its better grades. The nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this area.

We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home had 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 17 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care, which ended up being a weak link for this facility. We gave this nursing home a grade of just D in the area of long-term care. Long-term care scores in this range 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 looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 93.03483 percent of its patients. This is slightly lower than we anticipated but still a respectable figure. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
