On top of receiving a great overall score, this nursing home fared well in the area of long-term care. We awarded it an impressive grade of A for that category. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.66949 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Turning to inspections, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety.

This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility also excelled in the short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that area. This wrapped up a very impressive profile. Short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
