Long-term Care Quality
We want to point out that this place received a much better grade for long-term care than it did overall. In fact, we gave it one of our best grades in that category with an A. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.630135 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

In crafting our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Switching gears to our fourth category, we awarded this nursing home a D for our nursing category. This is the facility's least impressive category score.
