An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. It goes without saying that we were satisfied with our findings for this category.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded a strong short-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area with a score of B+. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. 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. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
In the final category we graded, this facility was given a very strong grade of B+ in our nursing category. With this score, the facility completed a very strong profile. When computing our nursing grades, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This place provided 5.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is among the highest figures 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 these figures. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these statistics as reliable measures of the caliber of nursing care provided.
