One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without having access to the deficiency related data, it was challenging to assess this nursing home in terms of this category.
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+.

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a grade of B+. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.

Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is long-term care, in which this facility was awarded a B. This facility did not end up having any weak spots. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents.

Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted vaccination data. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
