Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid negative health outcomes for the nursing home population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection grades are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspections. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety.

The final category we assessed was short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of A. This wrapped up a very impressive profile. Few facilities received an A- or higher in every single category. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals.

Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.
