Long-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in our long-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a B-. Even though this wound up being its lowest category score, this is still not a terrible score. Our short-term care ratings are probably more critical for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
