Long-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, this facility was given superb marks in the category of short-term care. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a score of A+. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Finally, this facility also earned excellent inspection reports in recent years. We gave it one of our best scores in the area of inspections, with an impressive grade of A. Few facilities can boast of receiving an A- or better in every category. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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.
