We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it one of our most impressive grades in that area with a score of A. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.45355 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's third best category was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a C. In calculating these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.
The last category we assessed is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a very poor score. This is clearly a significant concern. In calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
