Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this place one of our better scores in the area of long-term care, with an A. This is a much better grade than its overall score, which was decent but not elite. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 70.440254 percent of its patients. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Inspections is another category where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we gave this facility an A- for our inspections category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing grade focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This particular facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. Naturally, this grade pulled down the facility's overall grade a bit. With our short-term care grade, we try to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
