This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This facility also was given an A+ for its short-term care score. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation.

Racking up another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it received a score of A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care, in which this facility was awarded a B. While this turned out to be its poorest category score, this is nevertheless an impressive score. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 86.98225 percent of its patients, which is slightly lower than we anticipated. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
