In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we gave this facility an B. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a positive long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a B in that area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated was short-term care. We gave this facility a D for our short-term care category, making this its least impressive category. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational 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. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.8 percent of its residents returning home.
