Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility fared very well in our long-term care category. We gave them an impressive score of A+ in this category. For residents in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. When determining our nursing scores, we factor in both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a resident at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home was given a strong short-term care score this year, with a C. Even though this wasn't nearly as elite as several of its other category grades, this is still an acceptable rating for this area. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
