Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and 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. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last area, this nursing home was given an acceptable long-term care grade of C. Long-term care grades assess a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 71.05263 percent of its residents. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
