Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as described above, but we wanted to point out its excellent long-term care grade. We awarded them an A+ in this category. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.06 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Adding to its strong profile, this nursing home received a grade of B for inspections. This is an above average score in this category. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. Nursing grades are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home was awarded a grade of C for short-term care, which is a respectable score. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
