Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received a favorable short-term care score this year. We gave them a strong score in that category, with a grade of B. This is a better grade than the nursing home's overall score and was a boost to its overall profile. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more important for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. We assessed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this area. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent grade in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. With our long-term care category, we assess the volume of services provided by a nursing home, along with a handful of quality datapoints. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Turning to the final area of health inspections, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our inspection category. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
