Long-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned a very impressive long-term care rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A-. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 91.62304 percent of its residents. This is a bit lower than we expected but still a decent percentage. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses are with patients and the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a better than average nursing rating this year, with a B. Even though this was not as good as several of its other category grades, this is still one of our stronger grades for that area. In crafting these short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
