On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this place excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Not many nursing homes fared better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality

When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 97.209305 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing score is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this nursing home did not rank highly in terms of its nursing hours per resident, it performed better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In terms of the percentage of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, this nursing home performed better than the national average.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is short-term care, which was this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Sadly, this grade hurt the facility's overall profile a bit. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients 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 28 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
