In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a score of A for our long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.425285 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. Our nursing score is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 2.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is short-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is a poor grade. You should not simply rule out a facility due to one poor score though. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this facility's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 33 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
