This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 7.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the rare nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the place's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the biggest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. We weren't able to locate deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

The third area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home performed well in our long-term care category also. We awarded them an impressive score of A+ in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

Turning to our final category, this facility also was awarded an A+ nursing grade, leaving it as one of just a handful of facilities to be given all A+'s. The nursing score assesses several components, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
