Historical

This facility received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave it an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

The next area we assessed is short-term care. In this category, we gave this facility a decent grade of B-. This is this nursing home's weakest area. In our short-term care score, we seek to create a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 31.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
