One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it received an impressive inspection rating. Inspections is its best category grade. In this area, we awarded it an A-. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given an impressive long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category with a score of B+. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.511 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. In calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses are with patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is short-term care. We gave this nursing home a D for the area of short-term care, rendering this the facility's weakest category grade. With our short-term care category, we attempt to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's level 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. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
