Facilities with better scores in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Short-term Care Quality
We also want to point out the fact that this nursing home was awarded a high-end grade of A- in our short-term care area. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was long-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a grade of B. This actually proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. A nursing home could be doing a lot worse when it's lowest grade still is superior to most other facilities. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.666664 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
