Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility also was given a strong long-term care score. In fact, this is its second most impressive category grade. In that category, this facility received a grade of A-. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 90.06309 percent of its patients. This is a few points below what we expected. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation.

Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last area we analyzed is nursing. This facility was awarded a very good nursing rating this year, with a grade of B. Although this isn't as dominant as many of its other category grades, this remains one of the more favorable grades for that area. In computing our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
