Short-term Care Quality
This facility excelled in our short-term care category, with an impressive grade of A- in this area. This really propped up its overall score. With our short-term care rating, we try to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. It outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the nation in this area with 62 percent of its residents returning home. This is a much better rate than most facilities.
This facility also excelled in the area of nursing care, with an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides an impressive 4.7 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is among the highest totals in Washington. Lastly, this place also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given its third highest category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category, which is a respectable score. Our long-term care scores are more critical for individuals in need of more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. On top of providing favorable levels of nursing care, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This percentage is higher than many nursing homes. This combination proved to be effective as this facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.39 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Lastly, turning to our inspection category, we gave this facility a C. Our inspection grade is based on the facility's inspection reports. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. We did not find anything on this nursing home's inspection report to be overly alarming.
