Long-term Care Quality
It should also be noted that this nursing home's long-term care grade outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for its long-term care score, which is one of our higher grades. This boosted its overall score. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.244095 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This nursing home's inspection grade also was better than its overall grade. Due to a quality inspection report this year, it earned one of our better scores in that area with a B. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality
The next most favorable area we awarded this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care grade is generally used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services To offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Switching gears to our next area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for our nursing category. This was the facility's worst category rating. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
