Places that receive favorable grades in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety.

This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our better scores. For residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 60.546875 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a few points lower than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we analyzed was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B- in this category. Our short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we rated is nursing, ended up being this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. This is one of just a couple of weak points of an otherwise impressive profile. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
