Long-term Care Quality
This facility received an elite long-term care score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A in this category, which really bumped up its overall score. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the senior population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. 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. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. In determining these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Considering its score in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the data we looked at. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
