The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a strong grade in long-term care. This facility received a B+ in this area, which turns out to be one of our more impressive scores. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.609375 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. The last datapoint we assessed is its hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 1.78 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is middle of the pack in this area.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This facility averages 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning residents more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category was short-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. We gave it an F in this area. Even with multiple solid grades in other areas, this grade is still concerning so we would like to to make a note of it. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that just 46.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
