This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Surprisingly, we gave this facility a grade of B- for our short-term care grade, which really isn't too bad of a score. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is frequently a solid assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed.

The next area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 88.37209 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
