To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a dominant long-term care score. In fact, this is its second strongest category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 96.08541 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations.

Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B. Even though this wound up being its poorest category rating, this is still a good rating. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This nursing home is respectable both in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. It fared better than most facilities in this area with 54.5 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
