Our inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety.

Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B.

When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids.

This facility administered the vaccine to 99.557526 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable.

In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
