Long-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in our long-term care rating. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 81.30841 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also 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.
Short-term Care Quality
Another reason we assessed this nursing home so highly is that it was awarded an A+ short-term care score. This is just about as good as it gets in this category. Our short-term care ratings are likely more critical for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Lastly, this facility also received a virtually flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A. With this impressive grade, this place is one of the few facilities in Maine to receive straight A's. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health.
