Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with an A. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. We weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Without the deficiency related data for this facility, it was challenging to fully grade the place in this category.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category turned out to be its long-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of C. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.24812 percent of its residents. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital.

This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This number is quite a bit below the national average.
