Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. In determining these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 7.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
In addition, this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality
In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we gave it one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 92.14876 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points less than we were hoping for but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Switching gears to the next category, this nursing home was given a respectable nursing score. Even though this is not quite as good as several of its other category grades, this is still a middle of the pack score. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the number of hours nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared with most other nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving residents more often.
