Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also earned an excellent short-term care grade, with an A. In our short-term care rating, we seek to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 7.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care.

Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
The fourth area we assessed was long-term care, where this facility was given an A-. This rounded out an elite profile. Very few nursing homes received an A- or higher in in each area we assessed. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.40426 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
