Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care score and that actually turned out to be its next most respectable score. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
