Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home one of our better grades in the area of short-term care, where it earned an impressive grade of A+. This is notably better than the facility's overall grade, which was certainly not elite. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

We weighed the levels of nurses at the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last area, this facility really didn't perform very well. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is its weakest area. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.72727 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
