As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so well is that it received a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, long-term care ended up being its second most favorable category score. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A-. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.37 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This particular facility provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which was above average. Finally, this facility also excelled in several quality-based metrics we looked at. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category.

The next area we looked at is short-term care. This facility was awarded a better than average short-term care score in our assessment, with a grade of C. Even though this is not nearly as strong as a few of its other grades, this is nevertheless an acceptable score in this category. In crafting our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
