Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home received an impressive grade of A for short-term care. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Moving on to another of this facility's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections turned out to be one of its best category grades. In that area, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of B+. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is long-term care. This nursing home was given a strong nursing grade in our assessment, with a grade of B. Even though this is not nearly as strong as a few of its other scores, this remains one of our better grades for that category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.26028 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
