You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L.

A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

With our short-term care category, we attempt to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

The final area we rated was long-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in this category. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 79.710144 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
