To go along with its strong overall score, we awarded this place an A+ for inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors 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.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its profile, this facility also received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
In our last category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its long-term care grade. This topped off a first-rate report card. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided vaccination data. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
