Short-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also received an elite short-term care grade. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of A. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 7.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Finally, 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.

In addition, this nursing home earned a very good government inspection report this year as well. It received one of our higher scores in that category with a grade of B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
This facility's worst category was nursing, which is the final area we looked at. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area. In spite of a few favorable grades in other categories, this score is still somewhat concerning so we would like to to make a note of it. Our nursing score is based on quite a few factors, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
