To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A-. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received an impressive short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. In our short-term care grade, we try to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a decent score in that category, with a B-. Even though this is not on par with several of this facility's other grades, it is still not a terrible score. Long-term care grades are generally used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate this place's vaccination data. Finally, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
