While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection grades are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

The next best category we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. With our long-term care rating, we focus more on the quantity of services provided by a nursing home, as well as a handful of quality metrics. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 91.52542 percent of its residents, which is slightly below what we expected. The last datapoint we looked at was its hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 1.85 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is also below average.

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. This place performed admirably in this statistic.

The final category we rated was short-term care, where this nursing home received a rock bottom score here also. It received a lowly F for this category, which is obviously very concerning. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is typically a fair measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. With its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 37.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
