Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home excelled in our short-term care category, where it earned an impressive grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most meaningful for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. In determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are with residents as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.5 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This nursing home earned a very good government inspection report this year as well. For this reason, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth area, this facility did not perform well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in this category, this was clearly this facility's weakest grade. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.31507 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
