In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ inspection score. This score is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can offer a facility. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
To complement its dominant accomplishments in other areas, we awarded this facility a score of A for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.91305 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also received favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded it one of our stronger scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most important for individuals in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The last area we analyzed was nursing. This facility was awarded a very good nursing grade in our assessment, with a grade of B. Although this isn't as impressive as a few of its other grades, this remains one of the more favorable grades for this area. We analyzed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
