Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Grade: A

We also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given a top-shelf score of A in our long-term care category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 97.9021 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. Inspection grades are based on items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In our final category, this facility also received a very strong short-term care rating, with an A-. This finished off an elusive straight A report card. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is more often than not a solid measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
