We also wanted to emphasize that this facility has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This top notch nursing home also excelled in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A+. Only a small group of facilities performed better in this area. In our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This place excelled in two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied about 50% more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than the typical nursing home. This is typically an excellent sign. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation in this area with 73 percent of its patients returning home.

The next category we analyzed was long-term care. Adding to its impressive profile, this nursing home also performed well in that category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of of A in the category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. It does not look like this nursing home provided information about vaccinations.

It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The final area we looked at is nursing, where this facility received a grade of B+. This completed a very impressive report card. Very few nursing homes received a B+ or better in in each area we assessed. We weighed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 5.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day, of which a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any facility in the nation when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided.
