Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility excelled in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A-. Short-term care scores are meaningful for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing grade is based on a variety of factors. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In the last area we looked at, we found that this nursing home earned a solid government inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from government inspectors. It earned a decent score in our inspection category with a B-. This nursing home didn't have any major weaknesses.
