Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home really performed well in long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report.

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. There are many factors included in this category. Most of these factors reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D for the area of short-term care, making this the nursing home's least impressive grade. In forming our short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
