In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes.

Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at.

Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 83.05085 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points lower than the national average.
