Registered Staff Hours
We gave this nursing home one of our better scores in nursing, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our nursing grade is based on many datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning patients more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category scores came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. Short-term care grades are vital for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facilities third most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this category. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated only 47.84173 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The last category we looked at was inspections. Unfortunately, this nursing home didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. We had to give it an F in this category. Since this information is collected by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight a poor performance in this category. This really dragged down this place's overall score. When a place has this poor of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This facility was hit with one category J through K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently of over $50,000. This often signifies that government inspectors became fed up after several years of bad government inspections.
