Long-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Adding to its impressive profile, this facility also performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A. Inspection scores are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this was not one of this facility's strong suits. We awarded it a grade of D in this category. Clearly, this facility performed much better in the categories discussed above. Our nursing rating weighs several factors, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is short-term care. We awarded this facility a D in our short-term care category, leaving this as the facility's worst grade. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
