Grade: A

On top of receiving a quality overall score, this facility also earned excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our highest grades in that category, with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. It does not appear that we have information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Without information regarding deficiencies for this facility, it was difficult to assess the place in terms of this category.

Grade: A

On the list of its many impressive scores, this facility was given a top-shelf short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that area. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.

Grade: B

The last category we scored was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B. Although this turned out to be its least impressive category grade, this is nevertheless a favorable grade. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category.

This nursing home administered the vaccine to 86.734695 percent of its residents, which is slightly lower than we expected.
