In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 7.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
This first-rate facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing ratings are largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day.

Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
The fourth category we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of A-. This finished off a very impressive profile. Very few nursing homes received an A- or higher in every single category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal 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 considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 83.10811 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is somewhat below what we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
