To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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.

We also want to emphasize the fact that this nursing home was awarded a first-rate score of A in our long-term care area. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 94.48276 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.08 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these areas as good indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

The final category we assessed is short-term care. We gave this facility a decent grade in that category, with a grade of B-. Although this isn't on par with some of its other scores, it is nevertheless not a bad grade. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. When we looked at this facility's physical therapist hours, we found it offered more hours of physical therapy per day to its residents than most nursing homes. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 25.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
