While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report 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.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, we gave this facility a score of A- in that category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. 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 an impressively low figure.

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. When determining our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was short-term care. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor grade. This is certainly a significant concern. Short-term care grades are crucial for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in several staffing metrics we assessed. The facility supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 42.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
