Long-term Care Quality
This facility fared well in the area of long-term care, with an A+ in this area. This really helped its overall grade quite a bit. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's third best category was short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this area, it still fared relatively poorly. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the data we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
The next category we analyzed was nursing. We awarded this facility a D for our nursing category, making this the facility's least impressive grade. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our grade in this area. This place offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
