We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that category with a grade of A-. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Based on this, we still had a generally favorable view of this nursing home's recent inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a grade of B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our higher scores. Our short-term care scores are likely most important for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. It outperformed the vast majority of facilities in this area with 63.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Our nursing grade is mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also factored a few quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This nursing home was relatively weak in two of the areas we focus on, with subpar scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are typically good measures of the quality of nursing care available.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was long-term care, which is a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our long-term care category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this facility vaccinated only 62.8866 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.14 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
