This nursing home provided the vaccine to 65.21739 percent of its patients, which is a few points below what we were hoping for.

This nursing home also excelled in inspections. We gave it an B+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. This is one of the few facilities with an overall score in this range which received multiple category grades this high.

Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

In computing these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the final category, this facility was awarded a respectable nursing grade. Even though this wasn't quite as impressive as several of its other category grades, this is really not a poor grade. There are a host of factors included in this grade. Most of these criteria reflect nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider some quality-focused statistics. We like to look at the percent of residents who suffered pressure ulcers and major falls. Sometimes these metrics are decent indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care can reduce these problems.
