Facilities with better grades in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.24812 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we assessed was short-term care. In this category, we gave this facility an above average grade of B. In crafting these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. 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 area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
