Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. In calculating a facility's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving a resident more often.
