We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in this area with an A. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Switching gears to the fourth category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in the area of short-term care. This is the facility's weakest category rating.

The nursing home offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities.
