To pair with its favorable overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports.

Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home is also above average in the category of long-term care, where it was given a score of B+. It outpaced most facilities in this category. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 96.43464 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not leave this to chance.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. When calculating a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care. We gave it a B- in that category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of facilities in the country with 50.5 percent of its residents returning home.
