Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. Short-term care ratings are critical for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing score considers several factors. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third highest area ended up being its long-term care score, where it was awarded a B-. Our long-term care grade is typically used to measure a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.17219 percent of its residents, which is an above average datapoint. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Turning to our inspection category, it appears this facility has earned quality inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B- in this area. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
