Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall score, we gave this facility an A- for our short-term care grade. With our short-term care grade, we seek to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
Another strong feature for this nursing home was inspections, where it received a B in that category. It performed better than most facilities in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our higher grades in our long-term care category as well, with a B. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 86.7052 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Our last category is nursing, in which we awarded this nursing home a B- in that area. The nursing score is based on a handful of factors, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic.
