Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 78.37837 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
Moving on to our next category, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as bad as it gets. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
