To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. This is far better than its overall rating. Our inspection grades are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't consider 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.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive grades. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. 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 less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an D. The nursing category weighs a handful of components, many of which are based on nursing hours. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this area. Sadly, this grade hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more critical for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
