Furthermore, we found that a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at.

One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Another impressive feature for this place is its inspection score. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-, wrapping up its straight A performance. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
