Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's long-term care grade is one of its best features. The facility was given a C in this area. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores.

This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.3921 percent of its patients. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital.

We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
