Long-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This facility also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This grade is based on the facility's recent inspections. An A+ in this area is one of the biggest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
We also would like to point out the fact that this nursing home was given an elite grade of A in our short-term care area. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
In our last area, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for its nursing score. This finished off a very favorable profile. We weighed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in computing our rating in this category. 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 place 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 frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
