In addition to having a decent overall grade, we also wanted to note that this facility received favorable nursing marks this year. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a B+. This proved to be the facility's top grade. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
This nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it received an B+. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety.

Short-term Care Quality
The next highest area we gave this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care. This facility was awarded a C for this category. In a long-term care environment, the 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. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 96.1039 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
