Long-term Care Quality
One of the main reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it received a very impressive long-term care grade. This was its best category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A-. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 80.43478 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we expected but still a decent percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless government inspections recently. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored turned out to be this nursing home's poorest area. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still awarded it a respectable grade of C for our short-term care category. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.5 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.
