In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 8.9 hours of nursing care per resident daily, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly skilled levels of nurses. This is one of the highest totals of nursing hours we found. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. In terms of the number of its patients suffering falls leading to serious injury, this facility performed as well as any nursing home the country.

We also would like to emphasize the fact that this nursing home received an impressive grade of A in our short-term care category. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is considered to be a solid measure of a facility's rehabilitation. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its patients than most facilities. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Historical

The next area we looked at was long-term care. Adding to its first-rate profile, this nursing home also performed well in that area. In fact, it received a of A in the category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. This facility's vaccination statistics weren't as favorable some of the other datapoints in this category, such as its nursing hours. It provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 90.17094 percent of its residents. We would like to see some improvement in this area next year. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Turning to our inspection category, this nursing home excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent government inspections. In fact, we awarded it a score of A- for that category. This topped off its straight A report card. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
