We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents.

This facility vaccinated 96.64634 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
