Long-term Care Quality
This place fared well in our long-term care category. We gave it a grade of A- for that category. This helped its overall profile. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 80.434784 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Inspections is another area where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections category. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor dings are not something to panic about.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Our nursing rating consists of several subcategories, but the main one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth category, we awarded this facility a D for short-term care. This was the facility's weakest category rating. Of course, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In forming these short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, this facility was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
