Our inspection ratings are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home was given an acceptable long-term care grade. While this wasn't nearly as good as a few of its other scores, this is really not the end of the world.

On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.05213 percent of its residents, which is an above average figure. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital.
