Short-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home fared well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Building on its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that category. Nursing scores are largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 96.008865 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Moving on to the last category of inspections, this was not one of this nursing home's better grades. Inspection grades are based on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. We gave this nursing home a C in this category. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you that inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent danger to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
