Short-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for its short-term care score. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning our next area, this high end facility also excelled in the area of long-term care. In this category, we awarded it a A+. Very few nursing homes performed better in this category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In addition, this nursing home also received excellent inspection reports in recent years. We awarded it one of our best grades in the area of inspections, with a grade of A. Few other nursing homes can boast of receiving an A- or better in all four categories. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
