To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating.

Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety.

In doing so, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy.

On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

Unfortunately, this grade hurt the facility's overall profile a bit. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 79.09091 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
