To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A- for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this facility a B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.53052 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the senior population. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a substantially lower hospitalization rate than the majority of nursing homes.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. The nursing rating is based on a host of datapoints. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we like to look at quality-based metrics, such as the percent of residents who experienced pressure ulcers and major falls. These metrics are indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated was short-term care. For that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. Our short-term care scores are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of 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. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 43.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
