Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home received a grade of just D in that category. Unfortunately, this wound up being one of its better grades. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Given its score in this area, we were not stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home.

The next category we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave this facility a D in this area. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated a relatively low 68.89764 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
