This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded an impressive grade in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in this area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, this nursing home really did not perform well. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this was its poorest category. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 86.454185 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
