Short-term Care Quality
On top of performing well overall, this nursing home received even higher grades in the category of short-term care. In fact, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. Our short-term care grades are likely more important for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this facility a grade of A for our inspections rating. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. When calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving patients more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was long-term care. This facility was given a C in this area. Long-term care grades are typically used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 87.98587 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
