Long-term Care Quality
One of the main reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it received a very impressive long-term care rating. In fact, this was its best category. In that area, we gave this facility an impressive grade of A-. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.59155 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Turning to another one of this place's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection score. Inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. We gave this nursing home an A-. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In calculating a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the level of skill 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 facility 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.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is this nursing home's poorest category. However, even in its worst category we still gave it a decent grade of B- for our short-term care category. In our short-term care score, we seek to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
