This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Incredibly, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for its short-term care grade, which is not too bad of a score.

This area is frequently a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed.

This nursing home's inspections also weren't the source of this nursing home's horrific overall score. The facility received a score of C in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This facility had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means that it avoided the more ominous classes of deficiencies. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this category. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 57.522125 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
