Short-term Care Quality
Part of the reason this facility performed so well overall is that it excelled in the area of short-term care, with a B+ in that category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an B+ in this category. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some 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 CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. When calculating our nursing scores, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided 0 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. This is a fair grade in this area. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 91.899445 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we anticipated but still a respectable figure. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
