Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home an A- in short-term care. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B-. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This facility averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

This nursing home also received a decent inspection grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means that this facility avoided the more serious categories of deficiencies. We didn't consider anything on this facility's inspection report to be overly alarming.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was long-term care, which turned out to be a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this facility an D for our long-term care category. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated just 79.63801 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
