Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in our short-term care category, where it received an elite grade of A+. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 7.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A. There are a host of criteria included in this area. Many of these subcategories are tied to nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on our next area, this nursing home was given a top-shelf long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- in this category.

After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 91.666664 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat below what we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Lastly, this nursing home also earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a score of B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
