Short-term Care Quality
In addition to earning a great overall grade, this facility received an A+ in our short-term care rating. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most important for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 7.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
This nursing home also earned an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This score is based on the facility's recent inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on our next category, this facility was given first-rate long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a score of A in that category. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided vaccination data. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In the last category we scored, this facility received a very favorable grade of A- in our nursing category. With this grade, the nursing home rounded out a straight A report card. In calculating our nursing scores, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a patient more frequently.
