Grade: A

This nursing home also fared very well in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of A. Only a select group of facilities fared better in this area. Facilities that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients.

This nursing home vaccinated 95.652176 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital.

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our final category, this nursing home received an excellent short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in this area, rounding out one of our better profiles. In our short-term care category, we seek to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
