To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also performed favorably in the category of long-term care, with a strong grade of A- in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 96.9163 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes.

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last category, this nursing home didn't fare well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's weakest grade. Our short-term care scores are probably more meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
