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 6.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we gave this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
