In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities fared better in that category. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines.

Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a dominant short-term care score. In fact, short-term care ended up being its second most favorable category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country in this area with 63.5 percent of its residents returning home.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. When determining our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an impressive figure. Lastly, our nursing ratings also weigh quality measures, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed better than average in this metric.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home really didn't perform well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in that category, this is clearly this nursing home's poorest area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. While we determined this nursing home has a favorable volume of nursing care provided by nurses and other nursing staff, we found its vaccination rate to be somewhat low. It provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 88.9313 percent of its patients. This is a statistic we would really like to see this nursing home improve. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.1 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
