In computing our nursing ratings, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is below average.

This facility did not receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, it received just a D for its inspection grade, which was unfortunately its second best grade. Our inspection scores factor in many items on the nursing home's inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular nursing home was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious deficiencies.

Short-term Care Quality
Tragically, this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its score in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its residents returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next category, this nursing home did not fare well here either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 59.176033 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be significantly less than the national average. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
