Places that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe.

Historical

This nursing home is also above average in the category of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B. It outpaced most facilities in this area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.36709 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this place had 4.13 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this wasn't as favorable as most of its other scores in this area, this statistic can be skewed for some facilities based on the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Switching gears to the final area, this facility was given an acceptable nursing score of B-. The nursing grade is based on a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also baked some quality measures into our nursing ratings. This nursing home was relatively weak in two of the major metrics we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are usually good measures of the quality of nursing care available.
