To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this facility an A for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than its overall rating. Our inspection ratings are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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 through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

This facility's short-term care rating is one of its better grades. The nursing home was given a grade of B- in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.

This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.47475 percent of its patients. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home was awarded a grade of C in nursing, which is generally a decent score. The nursing grade considers numerous data points. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
