Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to direct your attention to the fact that this facility excelled in our long-term care rating. We awarded them a dominant grade of A+ in this area. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.004974 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. The nursing score includes quite a few factors, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 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 facility 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 final category we graded is nursing, ended up being this facility's weakest area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. This really was one of the few weak links in an otherwise strong report card. Our short-term care grade is often used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. In this place's case, it looks like it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
