In addition to performing well in its overall score, this nursing home received even higher grades in the area of nursing. We gave it one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A-. We analyzed the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving residents more frequently.
In addition, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more important for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is long-term care, where this facility received a C. This actually proved to be this facility's weakest area. This is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for people in need of more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.5935 percent of its patients. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
