Short-term Care Quality
Even though we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its relatively favorable short-term care grade. We awarded it a respectable grade of B in this area. Our short-term care grades are presumably more important for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
We were also pleasantly surprised to award this nursing home a relatively favorable government inspection score as well. We gave it a B- in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. Inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home received 3 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.

Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, we awarded this facility a D in long-term care. This is the facility's weakest category grade. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
