Short-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home performed well in short-term care. We awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more critical for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an B+. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's worst area is long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. It received an abysmal F in this area. Despite some strong scores in other areas, this grade is still somewhat of a concern so we would like to to draw your attention to it. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated just 84.61538 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
