Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this facility a poor overall score, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This is due to the facility receiving a decent government inspection report this year. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Sadly, this facility's second most favorable category is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 95.26627 percent of its patients for pneumonia.

Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
