Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall score, it did receive a respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent grade in that area with a score of B-. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Nursing scores are mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients.

We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Our final category is short-term care, in which we gave this facility a grade of C in that area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
