This nursing home really excelled at short-term care, with an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our short-term care grades are probably more important for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled J through L. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to put patient safety or health in imminent harm or jeopardy.

The final category we analyzed was long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. Naturally, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 96.666664 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
