Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care grades this year. In fact, we gave it one of our higher scores in that area, with a score of B+. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.333336 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.46 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we rated was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility an acceptable grade of B-. This actually turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. Our short-term care grade is often employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It was respectable in this area with 48.9 percent of its residents returning home.
