In addition to earning a strong overall score, this nursing home fared even better in our inspections category which is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for this category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we graded this nursing home so favorably is that it was awarded a very impressive short-term care grade. In fact, short-term care turned out to be its second best category score. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A. Our short-term care grade is generally used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. The nursing rating includes a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. 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. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive category is long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. For this area, we gave this facility an D. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated only 67.415726 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
