Long-term Care Quality
This facility really fared well in the category of long-term care, where it received an impressive grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this area. If it wasn't for this category, this nursing home's overall grade would have been lower. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few 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 always a good sign.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses are with residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This place offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this area, which is a rock bottom grade. This is obviously a major disappointment. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its poor score in this area, we weren't surprised to discover this facility offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.5 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
