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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents.

This facility vaccinated 98.888885 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Grade: B-minus

The final category we rated is short-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a B-. Even though this wound up being its weakest category score, this is still not a bad grade. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
