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 factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other strengths is its top-shelf long-term care score. We gave them one of our more impressive scores in that category, with a score of A-. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The next best area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Our next category is nursing, where we awarded this facility a B- in that area. We looked at the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with residents, in calculating our grade in this category. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this statistic. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning patients more frequently.
