We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, we also factored some quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This nursing home was relatively weak in a few of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are usually decent indicators of the quality of nursing care available.

The last category we rated is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in that area. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 94.82758 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
