Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility also received an A+ in short-term care. Our short-term care grade is often employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 6.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Our nursing score is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.6 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. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
In the last category, we gave this facility an A- for its long-term care rating. This finished off a very strong profile. Facilities that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.86184 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
