Short-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an A+ in this category. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
This facility also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Adding to its strong resume, this nursing home also received a superb long-term care grade, with a score of A-. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The last category we graded is nursing, where this facility was given a grade of A-. This topped off a very favorable profile. Very few nursing homes received an A- or better in all four categories. In determining our nursing grades, we weigh both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
