Inspection ratings are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

This facility provided the vaccine to 26.03486 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit lower than what we were hoping for.

This area is typically a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.
