We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. 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 facility 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this nursing home also earned a nearly flawless government inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with a score of A. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility also received a impressive long-term care score. Indeed, this is its third strongest category grade. In that area, this facility received a grade of A. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.82353 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its short-term care grade. This topped off a very impressive report card. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
