Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road grade in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-.

Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our fourth category, this nursing home was given a B- in long-term care, which is a decent score. Our long-term care scores are more critical for folks needing more conventional assistance associated with personal care. One of the data points we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 96.8421 percent of its patients. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
