With just 1.12 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes.
The final area we looked at is nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is certainly a major disappointment. The nursing rating is based on many subcategories, however, the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. On top of its subpar nursing hour totals, this place earned suboptimal marks in some of the quality-based measures we considered in calculating our nursing grades. We found that more of this place's residents suffered falls which led to serious injury. We believe that many falls could likely be prevented with better nursing care.
