You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies.

Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. Short-term care grades are generally employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

This place provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing scores also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed was long-term care. In this category, we gave this facility a C. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.36842 percent of its patients. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations.
