Long-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of long-term care. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.11321 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. We looked at the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
In the final category we looked at, this facility received a very strong grade of A in our short-term care category. With this score, the facility wrapped up a straight A profile. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
