This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies.

This nursing home was given strong grades in the category of short-term care as well. In fact, it received one of our strongest grades in that category with a score of A-. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most critical for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

However, we would not assess this nursing home solely on one weak area, since it earned some excellent scores in other categories. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 96.48094 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
