Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care, with an A in this category. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care.

This facility's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. It received an F for this category. Despite multiple respectable scores in other categories, this grade is nevertheless of a concern so we wanted to make sure you are aware. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care.

This nursing home vaccinated 92.9078 percent of its residents. This is a bit below what we anticipated but still a decent figure.
