To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. When calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the amount of time nurses are seeing patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This place provides an incredible 11.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Out of this total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the nation in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care being provided.

If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
In our final category, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for our short-term care score. This completed a very impressive report card. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy.

It supplied roughly 1.5 times as much care per patient from both of these care providers than a typical nursing home provided. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 36.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
