Although we didn't give this place a good overall grade, we actually gave it a relatively strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing grade is largely based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provides 4.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is better than average. In calculating our ratings, we apply more weight to hours performed by more highly trained nurses such as registered or licensed nurses. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as minimizing major falls. This place performed admirably in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's third best category is long-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this category, it still fared relatively badly. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 96.42857 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility had 2.48 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure is not nearly as favorable than its vaccination record.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is short-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Given its poor score in this area, we weren't shocked to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the data we assessed. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 33.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
