It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that had a long list of severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was short-term care. This facility's was given an abysmal short-term care score where it received a lowly F. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.5 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we scored is long-term care. This nursing home was given a poor grade of F in this area. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.13203 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
