Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received a strong overall grade as mentioned above, but we wanted to point out its excellent long-term care grade. We gave them a grade of A in this category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This facility also excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A- for that area, which is one of our highest grades. This is one of the few nursing homes with an overall score in this range which received multiple category grades this high. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed was short-term care. We awarded them one of our strongest grades in that area, with a A-. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Moving on to our final area, this nursing home received a respectable nursing score. While this was not nearly as elite as several of its other scores, this is truly not a poor grade. The nursing grade weighs numerous factors. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
