One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. It doesn't appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home was given a very positive long-term care score, with a grade of B+ in this category. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided vaccination data. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

In the last category we graded, this facility was given an impressive grade grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this score, the nursing home finished off a very strong report card. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home.
