Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a B in this area, which is much better than its overall score. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that had a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B.

This facility's worst area is long-term care, which is the last category we scored. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of D. Facilities that don't score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 91.71429 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is somewhat lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure.
