To go along with its strong overall performance, we gave this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a grade of A for our long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 3.95 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Although this wasn't as impressive as some of its other scores in this category, this figure can be skewed for some nursing homes based on the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. There are a variety of datapoints within this area. Many of these factors are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. This place performed admirably in this area. Avoiding serious falls is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility offers enough nurses to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category. Despite several strong grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless a bit disappointing so we wanted to draw your attention to it. Short-term care ratings are important for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 29.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
