In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life or death ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. The last datapoint we assessed is its hospitalization rate.

Our inspection ratings are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Grade: A-minus

Building on its high-end assessment, this nursing home also received a dominant short-term care score, with a grade of A-. Our short-term care ratings are important for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This proved to be a real strength for this nursing home. This place outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the nation with 62.1 percent of its patients returning home. This is a far better rate than most nursing homes.

Grade: B-plus

The final area we analyzed is nursing, where this nursing home was awarded a B+. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. Very few nursing homes received a B+ or higher in every category. Nursing grades are largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was above the national average. Lastly, this facility also excelled in several quality-based metrics we looked at. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, this place performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls. Many pressure ulcers can be avoided by offering better nursing care and having a policy of turning residents more frequently.
