This nursing home provides 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls.

Finally, we looked at this nursing home's inspection score This was not one of this nursing home's stronger areas. We gave it a C in this category. This isn't a horrible score in this category. It simply wasn't as favorable as some of this facility's other grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This place had 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories J through L. This indicates that inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to put patient safety or health in immediate harm or jeopardy. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
