One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is just about as good as it gets in this area.

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.

Among this facility's other achievements is its elite long-term care score. We awarded them one of our strongest scores in that category, with a grade of A. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

The last area we rated is short-term care. This facility received an above average short-term care score this year, with a grade of C. Even though this is not as dominant as many of its other category grades, this is still an acceptable grade for that category. In determining our short-term care scores, we size up a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is typically a fair assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. We weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
