Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home earned an impressive grade of A for short-term care. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. The nursing category includes a handful of components, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 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.

In addition, this facility also earned first-rate inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 8 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 last area we scored was long-term care. This facility received a favorable nursing grade this year, with a grade of B. Even though this is not as strong as some of its other category grades, this is nevertheless one of the more impressive grades in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 97.413795 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
