Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received a strong overall grade as described above, but we wanted to emphasize its excellent short-term care grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home really excelled in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A-. Few facilities performed more favorably in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 94.318184 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Turning to our inspection category, it appears this nursing home has earned quality government inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a grade of B in this area. Our inspection grades are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Sadly, this nursing home was hit with a category L deficiency, which is not what we expected given its inspection rating. These are the worst type of deficiencies. This category of deficiency indicates the government inspectors uncovered a widespread deficiency placing resident safety or health in immediate danger. Even a single serious deficiency of this nature should be taken seriously. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.
