Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this facility an A for short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a score of A- for our long-term care score. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Nursing scores are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Turning to our inspection category, it appears this facility has received quality inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B- in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
