Contributing to its first-rate profile, this facility also was awarded a strong short-term care grade, with a score of A. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. This place excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the typical facility. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Michigan in this area with 61.5 percent of its residents returning home.

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. The nursing grade assesses a handful of subcategories, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The final category we assessed was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. This actually is this facility's weakest category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.69788 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.47 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
