It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that had a long list of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 11 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed was short-term care, in which this facility was given an F. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. With its score in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was long-term care, in which this nursing home received a poor grade here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated a relatively low 63.380283 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
