Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most respectable category was long-term care, but it nevertheless earned just a D in that category. This still happens to be a well below average grade. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.097824 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations.

The last category we assessed was short-term care, in which this nursing home received an abysmal score here as well. It received a lowly F in this area, which is definitely a major concern. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Based on its weak score in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place offers substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes.
