Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of short-term care. In determining these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Moving on to another of this nursing home's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection rating. Inspections turned out to be one of its best grades. In that category, we gave this facility an impressive grade of B+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we graded was this nursing home's worst category. Nevertheless, even its lowest point would be a highlight for most facilities. We awarded it a favorable grade of B for our long-term care category. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 91.15646 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
