We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our short-term care category. In our short-term care assessment, we try to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's level of 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 all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.

In addition, this nursing home also earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best grades in that area, with an impressive grade of A-. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded was this nursing home's weakest category. However, even in its worst category we still gave it a decent grade of B- in long-term care. In forming these long-term care scores, we assess the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 54.090908 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a few points below what we expected. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
