We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest scores in this area with an A. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a favorable long-term care score. In fact, we gave it a grade of B in this area, which is one of our better. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of short-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this category. Our short-term care ratings are important for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Based on its poor rating in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility provides far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
The final category we analyzed was nursing, which is this nursing home's weakest category. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is clearly very concerning. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of those 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 assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
