This facility's overall grade was helped by a strong long-term care rating. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of B+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades.

This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades.

Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates this facility avoided the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, this nursing home received a respectable short-term care grade of C. Our short-term care grades are presumably most critical for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
