Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 7.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Nursing ratings are largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a patient at least once a day.

This facility also performed at a high level in the area of inspections. In fact, it earned a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is long-term care. We gave this facility a decent score in this category, with a grade of C. Although this was not as high as several of its other scores, it is still a middle of the pack score. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 78.27476 percent of its residents for pneumonia. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
