Short-term Care Quality
On top of earning a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the category of short-term care. In computing our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Another quality feature of this nursing home is its inspection score. In that category, we awarded this facility an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was long-term care. We awarded this facility one of our better grades in this area, with a B. Although this was not as strong as several of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless an excellent score. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
