Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in our short-term care category, where it received an impressive grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Our short-term care scores are vital for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum 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 employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Adding to its impressive category scores, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. Not many nursing homes performed as well in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 76.32653 percent of its residents against pneumonia.

In the final area, we awarded this nursing home a A- for our nursing grade. This topped off an elite profile. In computing our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses.
