This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent nursing rating. We gave them an A- in this area. We weighed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in determining our rating in this category. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

This facility also performed well in inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. It received one of our best grades in that category with an B+. Few nursing homes with an overall score in this range performed this well in multiple categories. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable short-term care grades this year. Indeed, we gave it one of our stronger grades in that area, with a grade of B. Short-term care grades are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.54 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
