On top of receiving a quality overall grade, this facility also received excellent inspections recently. We awarded it one of our best grades in that area, with an A. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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.
This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, this turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing grades are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to its strong assessment, this facility also was given a superb long-term care score, with a grade of A-. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 84.28571 percent of its residents, which is a few points less than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next area, this nursing home also performed admirably in the short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a B+ for that area. This finalized a very strong profile. Our short-term care grades are arguably most important for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
