In addition to earning a strong overall score, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the facility's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A for that area, which is one of our highest grades. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing rating is largely based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
