We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat 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
In addition, this nursing home was given strong marks in the category of long-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 93.82716 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat below what we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand 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. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final area, we awarded this facility a grade of D for the area of short-term care. This was the facility's least impressive category rating. Nevertheless, you should not over-emphasize one bad grade. Our short-term care grades are likely most important for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
