Facilities with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Nursing ratings are largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more important for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth area, this facility was given a highly favorable long-term care score. We gave it a grade of B+ in that area, completing one of our more favorable report cards. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
