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 receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 94.30894 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this facility an A+. The nursing rating features a variety of datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents.

In computing these short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Lastly, we also wanted to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless government inspections. We awarded them a B+ in this category. This wraps up a very impressive report card for this facility. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale.
