One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection grade. Inspections ended up being its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility an A. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We were not able to locate deficiency data for this nursing home. Without deficiency related data for this nursing home, it ended up being challenging to really grade it in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its first-rate resume, this nursing home also received an excellent short-term care grade, with a grade of A. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 7.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. The nursing score weighs several datapoints, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
In the final category we scored, this facility was given an impressive grade grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this score, the facility rounded out an elite profile. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate this facility's vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
