We wanted to point out that this nursing home' short-term care score outpaced its overall grade. We gave it a grade of B for its short-term care grade. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is often a solid measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B. Our nursing rating weighs many subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients.

When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 96.231155 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In the final category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's worst grade. Inspection grades are based on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. We gave this nursing home a D in this category, which is not a very good grade. Since this data is collected by government inspectors, we typically take it pretty seriously. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. Generally, you should be most cautious when considering a facility that has severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with a category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst deficiencies. These categories mean that the government inspectors uncovered a deficiency which puts resident health or safety in imminent danger. Finally, we also need to point out that this facility was assessed significant government fines recently of more than $50,000. This typically suggests that CMS inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of bad government inspections.
