Part of the reason this nursing home performed so well overall is that it excelled in the area of nursing, with a B+ in that category. Our nursing score is mostly associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 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 nursing home 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility received a favorable short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area with a score of B+. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

This facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. We awarded it a grade of B+ for that category, which is among our best scores. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next category, we gave this facility a grade of D for long-term care. This is the facility's worst category rating. Of course, this score hurt the nursing home's overall profile to a certain degree. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 98.82353 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
