We awarded it an impressive grade of A in this area. Our inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also received favorable short-term care scores this year. Indeed, we awarded it one of our stronger scores in that area, with a score of B. Short-term care grades are typically used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the number of residents that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next area, this facility received a respectable long-term care score. Although this wasn't nearly as good as many of its other grades, this is truly not the end of the world. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
