Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home excelled in our short-term care rating, with an A in this area. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more critical for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received a great nursing grade. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This nursing home also received a very favorable inspection grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst area was long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. We gave it a lowly F for this area. In spite of a few acceptable grades in other areas, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we felt obligated to make a note of it. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.481865 percent of its patients, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
