Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's overall grade was helped by a strong long-term care score. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a B+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 96.969696 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its third best category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this area, which is a respectable grade. In computing these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
The last category we analyzed was nursing. This nursing home received a grade of B- for the area. There are quite a few data points within this category. Many of these criteria reflect staffing levels. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in some quality-focused metrics. We like to look at the percentage of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These metrics are indicators of the quality of nursing care, since superior care tends to reduce these issues.
