Facilities that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing score is mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades.

Grade: A

Tallying yet another strong category grade, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it earned an A. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home also excelled in the short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ in that area. This finalized a first-rate report card. Short-term care grades are generally used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
