Long-term Care Quality
On top of being a quality facility overall, this facility really performed well in long-term care, where it received an A+. Few facilities did better in this category. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.74811 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place 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 one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This nursing home also excelled in inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that category. Our inspection ratings are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspections. Places that receive favorable grades in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this was not one of this facility's strong suits. We awarded it a grade of D in this category. Clearly, this facility performed much better in the categories discussed above. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, this nursing home didn't perform well. With a rock bottom grade of F in that category, this was clearly this facility's weakest category grade. Our short-term care grades are thought to be most meaningful for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We found that this place was below average in multiple staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
