Long-term Care Quality
This facility excelled in our long-term care category, with a grade of A- in this area. This really propped up its overall grade quite a bit. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Remarkably, this nursing home actually received a good grade in inspections as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best category came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a C. In computing these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The next category we analyzed is nursing, which turned out to be this facility's weakest category. It received an F for this area, which is certainly very disappointing. The nursing rating is based on quite a few subcategories, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
