In addition to receiving an elite overall score, this facility also received an A+ inspection score. This is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can offer a nursing home. Our inspection grades are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

The last area we assessed was short-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of C. This was this nursing home's weakest category. This is still not a poor grade. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 2.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
