Long-term Care Quality
In addition to performing well in its overall score, this facility earned even higher grades in the area of long-term care. In fact, it earned one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A+. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 98.92473 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In addition, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an A-. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of C in this category is by no means a bad score. There are a number of criteria included in this area. Most of the criteria are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the final category we assessed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
