Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being.

This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a decent grade of C. Short-term care ratings are crucial for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our last area, this nursing home didn't perform very well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 88.15331 percent of its residents. This is quite a bit below average. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
