We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest grades in this category with an A. Our inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we had favorable view of this nursing home's recent inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home an impressive score in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this area, which happens to be one of our more impressive scores. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We found that just 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades.
