We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This facility provided the vaccine to 99.4709 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The last category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This ended up pulling down this facility's overall score quite a bit. When a place has this bad of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility was assessed one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by inspectors had potential to cause actual harm to residents. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This usually means that a bad track record has been an issue for several years.
