Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our short-term care scores are likely more important for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 7.4 percent of this nursing home'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. Nursing ratings are mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

In addition, this facility also earned excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best scores in that category, with a grade of A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was long-term care. This facility was awarded a very good nursing grade this year, with a grade of B. Even though this was not quite as good as many of its other scores, this remains one of our more impressive grades in that category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
