It should also be noted that this facility's inspection grade outpaced its overall score. In fact, we gave it a B+ for its inspections grade, which is a very solid score. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints.

Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most meaningful for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home, which as an area this facility performed much more favorably.

Our last area is long-term care, in which we awarded this facility a grade of C in that category.

This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital.
