One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Building on its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this facility an B+ for our nursing rating. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more important for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home received a grade of C for long-term care, which is a decent score. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
