On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in nursing, where it received an A. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Michigan in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our stronger scores in our long-term care category as well, with a B. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.0991 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Finally, this place 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.
Turning the last category of inspections, we gave this nursing home a C for this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. To our surprise, this nursing home was assessed a category J through K deficiency, which are some of the worst possible deficiencies. This generally indicates the government inspectors found a deficiency which places resident safety or health in imminent jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
