Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home really performed well in long-term care. We gave it an impressive grade of A for that area. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 95.435684 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This facility also performed well in inspections. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an B+. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Our nursing grade assesses several factors, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's worst category is short-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. For this area, we gave this facility a D. In determining these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. In this facility's case, we found that it provides fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
