Long-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 91.51515 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Turning to another one of this nursing home's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection rating. In fact, inspections proved to be one of its best category grades. We gave this facility an B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is short-term care, where this facility was given a B-. This actually turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. This is still not a major area of concern. In computing these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. It does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
