Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this place an A+ for our inspection category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. We looked at the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our grade in this category. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was dominant in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a score of A. Only a select group of facilities received a better grade in this category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.36842 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home also performed admirably in the short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for that category. This wrapped up a very strong report card. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
