Adding to its profile, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given an impressive long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.12281 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a dangerous ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the final category we assessed, this nursing home earned a decent grade in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a B- for that category. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
