One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A-. There are quite a few criteria included in this category. Most of these subcategories relate to staffing levels. This nursing home averages 3.8 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's third best category turned out to be long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. Our long-term care grades are crucial for individuals looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.72 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

The last area we graded was short-term care. For that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 17 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
