Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this proved to be a quality nursing home is that it received a very impressive short-term care score. Short-term care turned out to be its best category. In that area, we gave this facility an A. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A. Our nursing rating considers a number of datapoints. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

We also wanted to point out this nursing home's nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of A- in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor dings aren't something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was nursing, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this facility a D in this category. This is one of just a few weak points in a quality report card. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down this facility's vaccination rates. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
