On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also earned top notch government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our best grades in this area, with an A. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received an impressive short-term care score. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. Our short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our next category, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The last area we graded is nursing, where this facility was given a grade of B+. This wrapped up an elite report card. Not many facilities earned a B+ or better in every category. Our nursing grade analyzes several subcategories, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning residents more often.
