Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively positive inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care grade and that actually turned out to be its second most favorable score. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important.

Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.32886 percent of its patients, which is a very solid datapoint.
