To pair with its decent overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than its overall grade. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- in that category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. This nursing home's vaccination data lagged a bit behind a few of the other datapoints in this area, such as its nursing hours data. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 77.5 percent of its residents. We would like to see some improvement herein this statistic next year. Lastly, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. We found that this place had 2.16 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a middle of the road grade in the category of short-term care, with a grade of C. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be more of a strength for this facility. In fact, we found that it outperformed the majority of facilities in the country in this area with 54.3 percent of its residents returning home.
The last category we scored is nursing. It received a lowly F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. This is obviously a major concern. Nursing grades are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. Quantity of nursing care is apparently not the problem here with this nursing home's grade. This place actually provides an above average 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Despite performing well in terms of nursing hours, this nursing home didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This place was above the national average in both metrics. This is not a good sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, these data points dragged down this nursing home's nursing score significantly.
