To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider 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
This facility received strong grades in the area of long-term care as well. Indeed, we gave it one of our strongest scores in that area with a area of A.

This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality
The third highest area we awarded this facility in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In crafting these short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
The final area we graded was nursing. We awarded this nursing home a solid score in this category, with a C. While this was not as strong as a few of this nursing home's other scores, it is still not a terrible score. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we look at the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic.
