Long-term Care Quality
We want to note that this place received a much better grade for long-term care than it received overall. we gave it one of our highest grades in that area with an A-. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 47.727272 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a bit below what we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Inspections is another category where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we awarded this nursing home an A- for our inspections category. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports.

Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored is short-term care. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is a very poor score. This is obviously a significant concern. In calculating these short-term care scores, 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 create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 2.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
