Short-term Care Quality
This facility's best category grade came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B+. It actually outperformed many nursing homes in this area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also earned an excellent nursing grade. We gave them an impressive grade of B- in this category. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

We also found that this nursing home has earned favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was long-term care, which was this facility's worst category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.63314 percent of its patients, which is a very solid datapoint. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
