Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. We weren't able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home.

Our nursing rating is largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 8.1 hours of nursing care per patient daily.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for our long-term care category. This is the facility's weakest category score. Naturally, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade a bit. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. It does not appear that this nursing home provided vaccination data.
