When calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades.

Adding to its impressive category grades, this facility excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area.

Turning to our next area, this facility also received a grade of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 72.83951 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a few points less than we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a B. Believe it or not, this is this facility's least impressive category. A nursing home is doing something right when their lowest score still is better than most other nursing homes. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
