While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid places that have a long list of deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 73.36123 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth category, this nursing home didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
