While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection ratings are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category scores came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our short-term care grades are probably more important for folks requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a D for our long-term care category, rendering this the facility's weakest category. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
