Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This facility excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is generally an excellent sign. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility in the country with 66.4 percent of its patients returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this statistic.
Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Nursing scores are primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. This place provides an impressive 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Out of this total, more than one fourth of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is among the most highly trained levels of nurses. We add more weight to hours provided by skilled nurses in determining our nursing ratings. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality
We also want to emphasize the fact that this nursing home was given an impressive score of A- in our long-term care area. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.44898 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.9 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Lastly, we wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a B+ in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
