Short-term Care Quality
We wanted to point out that this facility's short-term care grade outperformed its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for short-term care, which is one of our better scores. This really propped up its overall grade. Our short-term care scores are likely more important for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it earned a grade of B. Nursing scores are primarily associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

It should also be noted that this facility's inspection score was strong as well. In fact, we awarded it a B for its inspection reports, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is a poor score. This is obviously a significant disappointment. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.19786 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
