Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Another reason we assessed this facility so highly is that it was awarded an A+ long-term care score. This is just about as elite as it gets in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population.

This rating is generally a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Finishing off this nursing home's impressive profile, we gave this facility an A- for our inspections rating. With this score, the nursing home completes its straight A report card. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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.
