Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Adding yet another impressive category grade, we gave this facility a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our final area, this nursing home also was given an impressive short-term care score, with a B+. This topped off a very impressive report card. With our short-term care grade, we strive to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
