You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home really excelled in the category of long-term care, where it received a score of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 88.47736 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a few points lower than we expected but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the last area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our short-term care category. This is the facility's least impressive category rating. However, you should not focus exclusively a single bad area. Short-term care grades are generally employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We found that this nursing home was below average in several staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
