Long-term Care Quality
This facility's overall grade was helped by a strong long-term care rating. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of B+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best area came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are critical for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Turning to the final area of health inspections, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our inspection category. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. We really didn't find anything on this nursing home's inspection report to be overly concerning.
