Short-term Care Quality
This facility received a strong overall score as described above, but we want to note its excellent short-term care grade. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes performed as well in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Our nursing score includes a handful of datapoints, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state 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 by having a protocol of moving a patient even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's worst area is long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. We wanted to draw your attention to this possible weak link, but you shouldn't over-emphasize one area either. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
