In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are important for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

Turning to another of this facility's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections turned out to be one of its best category grades. In that category, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final category, this facility was awarded a respectable long-term care score. Although this isn't as impressive as many of its other scores, this is still a middle of the pack score. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 86.41115 percent of its residents against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
