In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of short-term care. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is typically a reliable measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. There are numerous datapoints within this category. Most of these subcategories are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving patients at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home received a grade of B. This actually was this facility's least impressive area. A facility could be doing a lot worse when their weakest score still is superior to most other nursing homes. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
