To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the country with 67 percent of its residents returning home.
This nursing home also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the rare nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed is long-term care. This nursing home fared very well in our long-term care rating also. We gave them an exemplary score of A+ in this category.

In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to locate this facility's vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility also performed admirably in our nursing category. In fact, we gave it an A for this area. This wrapped up a straight A profile. We analyzed the levels of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This nursing home provided 7.6 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is among the higher totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by both of these figures. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We look at these statistics as predictive indicators of the caliber of nursing care offered.
