Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety.

Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we graded this nursing home so well is that it was given a dominant long-term care grade. Indeed, long-term care ended up being its second best category score. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 95.41284 percent of its patients, which is more than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital.

Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care, in which this nursing home received a C. Even though this ended up being its least impressive category rating, this is still not the end of the world. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. It doesn't appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home.
