This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This means that this facility dodged the more serious categories of deficiencies. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Short-term Care Quality

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated just 70.62707 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
Turning to our last area, this facility really didn't perform well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
