On top of being an elite facility overall, this facility also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Very few nursing homes performed as well in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

We also gave this nursing home a score of A+ for its short-term care grade. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This score is frequently a useful assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. This facility is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. In fact, it offered about one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility.

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided 4.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This was one of the higher figures we found. Furthermore, we found that a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of offering high levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in the state when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final area, this nursing home was given a decent long-term care grade. Even though this isn't nearly as dominant as several of its other scores, this is really a middle of the pack score. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the amount of services provided by a facility, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Lastly, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
