These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies.

In this process, we assess a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy.

On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Switching gears to the last area, we awarded this nursing home a D for our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's weakest category rating. Sadly, this category pulled down the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. For patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure.

This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
