Short-term Care Quality
On top of earning a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ short-term care grade. Short-term care scores are crucial for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 7.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
This nursing home also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the facility's government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. The nursing rating includes a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth area, this facility was given a highly favorable long-term care score. We awarded it a grade of A in this area, rounding out a straight A profile. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to track down information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
