In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of short-term care. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is generally a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspections. Places that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L.

The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

When determining our nursing ratings, we factor in both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we scored was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a solid grade in that area, with a B-. Even though this was not as favorable as many of this nursing home's other scores, it is still nothing to be ashamed of. For residents seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 92.68293 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
