Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this proved to be a quality facility is it received a very impressive short-term care grade. Short-term care is its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this facility an A. When computing our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

We also found that this nursing home has earned favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we graded is long-term care, proved to be this facility's worst category. We awarded this facility a D in that category. This really was one of the couple of weak points on a quality report card. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
