On top of earning a great overall score, this nursing home performed even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the facility's recent inspection reports. We awarded it an A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a score of A for our long-term care score. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.49 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a solid score in the area of short-term care, with a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are vital for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This place fared better than most facilities in this area with 53.4 percent of its residents returning home. At most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
The next category we assessed was nursing. This nursing home received a grade of C for this category. Our nursing score assesses a handful of components, however, the most important one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provides only 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
