As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

We also gave this facility a middle of the pack score in the category of short-term care, where it received a C. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was long-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is a very poor grade. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 95.70815 percent of its residents, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
