Short-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled at short-term care. We awarded them an A+ in this area. Our short-term care scores are likely more critical for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This nursing home also earned excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best grades in that category, with an A-. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a B-. While this ended up being its weakest category grade, this is still not the end of the world. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the amount of care provided by a facility, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
