This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.68944 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes.

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care, in which this facility was given a grade of B. Believe it or not, this turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. A nursing home is doing something right when their worst score still beats out most other nursing homes. Our short-term care grade is generally used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
