Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we awarded this facility a B+ in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable scores.

Grade: C

The third area we graded is long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of C in this category.

Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 95.5 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed is inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This pulled down this facility's overall score quite a bit. For facilities with poor inspection ratings, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility had 8 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we want to point out that this facility received large government fines totaling over $100,000. This usually signifies that a poor track record spanned several years.
