Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility one of our better grades in the area of long-term care, where it received an A-. This is a much better grade than its overall score, which was decent but not elite. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 97.15762 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. We weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second least favorable category was short-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a well below average score. Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we looked at. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
Turning to the next area, this facility really did not fare very well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this was this nursing home's worst grade. The nursing score weighs several data points. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
