To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, this nursing home also received favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we gave it one of our higher scores in that area, with a score of B+. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 97.41259 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. There are numerous datapoints included in this category. Most of the datapoints reflect staffing levels. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is well below average. Lastly, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the next category, this facility was given a decent short-term care grade of C. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most critical for patients needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
