Long-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. For patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 70.39474 percent of its patients, which is a bit less than we anticipated. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses are seeing residents as well as the levels of training of those nurses.

While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth category, this facility was given an excellent short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a B+ in this category, topping off one of our finer profiles. Short-term care scores are meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
