Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we did give it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality

We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this adversely affected quality of care.

Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed is long-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in that category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 54.231976 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be significantly lower than average. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
