Long-term Care Quality
On top of being a quality facility overall, this facility really performed well in our long-term care category, where it received a grade of A+. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Adding to its impressive profile, this nursing home also performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, it earned a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. 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 C in this category is by no means a bad score. We analyzed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in calculating our grade in this category. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of D for the area of short-term care, leaving this as the facility's weakest area. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
