In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility 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+. Inspection scores are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also awarded this facility a grade of A for our long-term care score. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.27891 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

In our short-term care category, we try to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy.

In fact, we found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
The next area we graded is nursing, which proved to be this facility's weakest area. We awarded this facility a D in this area. Of course, this grade hurt the facility's overall profile to a certain degree. We analyzed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with residents, in determining our rating in this area. This particular nursing home averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This statistic is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
