Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L.

This nursing home averages 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable area is short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. It outperformed the majority of facilities in the country with 54.2 percent of its residents returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility provided the vaccine to just 84.644196 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.88 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
