Short-term Care Quality
We want to note that this nursing home's short-term care grade outpaced its overall grade. This facility earned a B+ in this area, which is a very solid score. Short-term care grades are commonly used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

We also found that this facility has earned favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is better than many nursing homes in this category. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's worst category was long-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area. Despite a few solid scores in other categories, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we would like to to point it out. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 96.26168 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
