Long-term Care Quality
On top of being a quality facility overall, this nursing home really fared well in our long-term care category, where it received an A. Few facilities did better in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This facility also performed well in inspections. In fact, it earned a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with a score of B+. Few nursing homes with an overall score in this range performed this well in multiple categories. Our inspection ratings are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Nursing homes that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. 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. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving residents at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. This is a fair grade in this category. Our short-term care grades are arguably more important for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
