We also would like to point out that this facility excelled in our nursing grade. We awarded them an A+ in this area. The nursing rating weighs numerous factors. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area.

Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. It doesn't look like we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We would like to have more information about this nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Moving on our next category, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care grade. This is a dominant grade. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we analyzed was long-term care, where this nursing home received a B-. This turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. This is still not a poor grade. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 96 percent of its patients. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
