To go along with its favorable overall score, we awarded this facility an A for the area of inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among the reasons we rated this nursing home so favorably is that it received a dominant long-term care score. In fact, long-term care turned out to be its second most favorable category score. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.64285 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a solid grade in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
The final category we looked at is nursing. This nursing home was given a grade of C in this category. In calculating our nursing ratings, we factor in both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
