We would like to point out that this nursing home's long-term care score exceeded its overall score. This nursing home earned a B in this category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.52399 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
We also awarded this nursing home a B- for our inspections rating. This is more impressive than its overall grade. Inspection grades are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

The facility offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities.
