Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Our nursing category is based on quite a few subcategories, most of which are based on nursing hours.

This facility was above average in two of the major areas we focus on, with solid scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

This area is more often than not a meaningful measure of the facility's rehabilitation. In this facility's case, we found that it offers less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility did not fare well here either.

The last category we analyzed was long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this area. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents.

With only 0.47 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
