In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also performed well in the category of long-term care, with a superb grade of A in this area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.24561 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. This facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. While it had 2.12 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most facilities due to it having some more complicated patients.

This nursing home provides 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home was above average in two of the metrics we focus on, with good scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was short-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is a very poor grade. This is certainly a significant concern. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is typically a reliable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. It appears that this nursing home was subpar in multiple staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 48.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was below the national average.
