Short-term Care Quality
This facility received a short-term care score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this facility a B in this category. Our short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
We would also like to point out this nursing home's strong inspection grade. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth area, this nursing home didn't perform very well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this was its weakest area. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 94.411766 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
