Long-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ long-term care grade. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Turning to inspections, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report, which is still very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to our last category, this nursing home was awarded a decent short-term care rating. While this isn't as elite as several of its other category grades, this is still not a bad grade. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation.

The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community.
