Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home earned an elite short-term care grade. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A- in this category, which really helped its overall grade. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This area is typically a useful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
This facility also performed well in the area of inspections. It received one of our highest grades in that area with an B+. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. When computing our nursing scores, we assess both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored was long-term care, turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a D in this area. This really was one of just a few weak points on a quality profile. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 97.35849 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
