This particular facility was assessed 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to patient safety or health.

Short-term Care Quality
Our third area we assessed was short-term care, in which this facility received an F. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Given its grade in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this area. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 94.50549 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
