Long-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.56332 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility was given a top-shelf score of A in our short-term care area. In computing these short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. It does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Switching gears to our last category, this nursing home received a high-end nursing score. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in this area, wrapping up one of our better profiles. In determining our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
