In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility really excelled at short-term care, where it earned an A. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was long-term care. We gave this nursing home one of our more favorable grades in this category, with a B. This facility proved to be very solid across the board. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
