Long-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this proved to be a strong nursing home is that it received a very impressive long-term care grade. In fact, long-term care ended up being its best grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Turning to another one of this facility's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection rating. Inspections turned out to be one of its best category grades. We gave this nursing home an A. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. There are a host of criteria within this grade. Many of the factors reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. 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. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Our short-term care grade is often used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
