This facility received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this area. Inspection scores are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. We weighed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in computing our score in this category. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that category. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 95.81749 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
