Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home fared well in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.256096 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This nursing home also excelled in nursing, where it received an B+. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 also performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, it earned a nearly flawless inspection report this year. It received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of B+. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was short-term care. It received an F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. This is certainly a significant disappointment. Our short-term care grade is often employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. We found that this facility was subpar in the two key staffing metrics we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
