Although we gave this nursing home a poor overall grade, we actually gave it a fairly respectable score in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B-. This was certainly better than its other categories. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on 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 CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

This nursing home received its third highest category score in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a respectable score. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our next category, this nursing home received an acceptable long-term care grade of B-. Long-term care grades are used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 97.84173 percent of its patients. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. With 2 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility is not too far off the national average.
