One of the reasons this place ended up being a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this very important category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its first-rate profile, this nursing home also was awarded a superb short-term care grade, with a score of A. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home.

Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility was awarded a superb grade of A in our long-term care area. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 86.44068 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we expected. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The last category we graded is nursing, where this facility received a grade of A-. This wrapped up a very favorable report card. Very few facilities earned an A- or better in every single category. Our nursing rating features a host of data points. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
