Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a score of A for our long-term care grade. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the senior population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

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 C in this category is by no means a bad score. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still gave it an acceptable grade of C in short-term care. With our short-term care score, we strive to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
