Long-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also received an elite long-term care score. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with an A-. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.73753 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This nursing home also excelled in inspections. We awarded it an B+ for that category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. Our nursing grade considers several factors. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This place averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is a very low figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a resident more often.
Short-term Care Quality
Our final area is short-term care, where we awarded this facility a B- in that category. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
