Short-term Care Quality
In addition to earning a great overall grade, this facility received an A+ in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Turning to inspections, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of A-. This wrapped up an elite profile. Only a select few nursing homes earned an A- or higher in every category. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 90.36144 percent of its patients, which is somewhat lower than we were hoping for. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
