Long-term Care Quality
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility received even higher grades in long-term care. In fact, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.35275 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. Our nursing grade assesses several subcategories, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.
