This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home is also strong in the area of long-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 96.62522 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B. Our short-term care ratings are important for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Turning to the next area, we awarded this facility a D in nursing. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Unfortunately, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
