This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave it an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Inspection grades are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat 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
Among this nursing home's other achievements is its dominant long-term care grade. It received one of our best scores in that area, with a score of A-. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a B- in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
The last category we rated was nursing. This nursing home was given a C for the area. When computing a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning patients at least once a day.
