In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, it also received A+ government inspections in recent years. Its inspections were nearly flawless. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports.

Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a resident more often.

The next area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility was given an above average long-term care score, with a B+ in this category. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided vaccination data. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also 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 an impressively low figure.

Switching gears to the last area, this facility was given an excellent short-term care score. Although this wasn't quite as impressive as some of its other scores, this is nevertheless one of the more impressive grades a facility can receive. Short-term care scores are meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
