The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Our inspection grades are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest area is its short-term care grade, where it received a grade of C. Short-term care ratings are important for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
