Short-term Care Quality
This facility earned a favorable short-term care rating this year. We awarded them a strong grade in that category, with a grade of B. In computing these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
We also wanted to point out that this facility received an impressive grade of B in the category of nursing. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a patient at least once a day.

It should also be noted that this facility's inspection score was strong as well. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for its inspection reports, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, this facility was given a respectable long-term care score of C. In forming these long-term care scores, we analyze the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 80 percent of its patients. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
