We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which is much better than its overall score. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with too many severe deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our next area, this facility really didn't fare very well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Short-term care grades are meaningful for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either.
