Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility excelled at short-term care, where it received an A. Our short-term care scores are important for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. 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 data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our nursing rating weighs quite a few components, however, the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, we were not able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Without all of the deficiency data for this facility, it was difficult to really grade it in terms of this category.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the next area, this nursing home received a grade of C in long-term care, which is a decent rating. Long-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's amount of care. This includes a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
