Short-term Care Quality
Among its many dominant grades, this nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in this area. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most critical for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.435684 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The next area we looked at was this facility's worst area. However, even in its weakest link we still gave it a respectable grade of B- in nursing. When computing our nursing ratings, we assess both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
