One of the reasons this ended up being a strong facility is that it received a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In this area, we gave this facility an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home truly excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Only a select group of nursing homes performed more favorably in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.

Turning to the next category, this nursing home also earned a grade of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Our short-term care grades are important for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing.

Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The final area we scored was this nursing home's poorest area. Nevertheless, even in its weakest link we still gave it a respectable grade of B- in our nursing category. We analyzed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at.
