Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we wanted to note its excellent short-term care score. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our short-term care grade is often employed to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it excelled in the area of inspections, with a B in that category. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a B-. Although this ended up being its lowest category rating, this is nevertheless not a terrible score. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 99.62121 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital.
