The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Our inspection grades are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
This facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an B. Few nursing homes performed better in this category.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a favorable score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B in that category. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.959595 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest area is short-term care, which is the last category we scored. It received an abysmal F for this category. Despite multiple solid grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we wanted to make a note of it. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. In this place's case, it looks like it provides fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.
