In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. We weren't able to locate information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without having access to complete deficiency related data, it was challenging to assess the place in this area.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded an impressive long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category with a score of B. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 88.92857 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is somewhat below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final area, this facility was awarded a C for short-term care, which is a respectable rating. Our short-term care grade is often used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. To have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 3.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
