This place really excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 91.09312 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an B+. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given its third most favorable category grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in this category, which is an acceptable score. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Turning to our next area, this nursing home received a grade of C in nursing, which we consider to be an acceptable rating. The nursing rating includes quite a few subcategories, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
