To go along with its great overall grade, we gave this facility an A for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

To complement its first-rate accomplishments in other areas, we gave this facility a grade of A- for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. Overall this looks like a good option for long-term care.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its first-rate resume, this facility also received a dominant short-term care score, with a score of A-. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This proved to be a real strength for this facility. This place outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the country with 56.7 percent of its residents returning home. This is a much better rate than most nursing homes.
Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home was given a strong nursing rating. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in this category, rounding out one of our finer profiles. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place 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 country 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 having a policy of turning a resident more frequently.
