Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an excellent short-term care score, with a grade of A. With our short-term care score, we endeavor to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A-. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 facility 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 avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Racking up yet another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated proved to be this facility's weakest category. However, even in its worst category we still gave it a decent grade of B- for our long-term care category. In crafting our long-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's personal care services. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 97.75281 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations.
