Short-term Care Quality
This facility really excelled in our short-term care rating. We gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. This really boosted its profile. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Inspections is another area where this facility excelled. We awarded this nursing home an B+ for our inspections category. This is far more impressive than its overall grade. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's third highest area was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a C. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the quantity of care offered by a facility, as opposed to more medically-intensive services. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 99.46809 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Our final area is nursing, in which we awarded this nursing home a C in that category. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few factors, however, the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
