Short-term Care Quality
It should also be noted that this nursing home' short-term care score outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we gave it a B+ for short-term care. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
This nursing home also received a strong inspection score. Inspection grades are based on the nursing home's recent government inspections. We gave this facility a B in this category. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor dings are not the end of the world.

Another reason we rated this facility so highly is that it earned an A+ nursing score. The nursing score includes many components, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
Our next area is long-term care, where we gave this facility a grade of C in this category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to just 68.96552 percent of its residents, which is slightly concerning. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
