On top of being an elite nursing home overall, this nursing home performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few facilities fared as well in this area. Our inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also awarded this nursing home a score of A+ for its long-term care grade. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 87.755104 percent of its residents, which is a few points below what we expected. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Our nursing rating is based on a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category, this facility also received an impressive short-term care score, with a grade of B+. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. Short-term care ratings are critical for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
