When computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses spend with residents as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls.

Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
