Long-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in long-term care. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.8 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. 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 an impressively low number.
Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report.

This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is short-term care. In this area, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. This actually is this nursing home's least impressive area. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
