Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded an impressive score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B in that area. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 98.739494 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
