Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for short-term care. In determining these short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 7.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This facility also received favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is obviously somewhat disappointing. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
