Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility an A for our long-term care rating. This grade is more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.08 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
This facility also performed well in inspections. It received one of our highest scores in that area with an A-. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road score in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. Short-term care grades are meaningful for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. This was more of a strength than its staffing metrics. This place performed well in this metric with 56.8 percent of its residents returning home. This was a big boost to its grade in this area.
This nursing home's worst category is nursing, which is the final area we scored. For this area, we gave this facility a grade of just D. When computing a facility's nursing score, we look at the amount of time nurses are with patients and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below average. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. These statistics pulled down this nursing home's nursing rating significantly.
