Long-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home fared well in long-term care. We gave it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing score is based on several factors, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 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.

Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it excelled in the area of inspections, with a B in that category. Inspection grades are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for our short-term care category, rendering this its weakest category. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.8 percent of its patients returning home.
