This area is frequently a solid assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade.

This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day.

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an impressive grade of B+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. We would not necessarily disregard a nursing home because of one concerning grade though. Nursing homes that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 73.38709 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
