To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this facility an A+ for inspections. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate 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
In addition, this nursing home was given dominant marks in the area of long-term care. As a result, it was given one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of A+. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our last area, this nursing home received a respectable short-term care rating. Even though this is not quite as strong as many of its other grades, this is truly not a major area of concern. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
