An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means CMS 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

Grade: A

We also wanted to note the fact that this nursing home was given a first-rate score of A in our long-term care category. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. This facility's vaccination data weren't as impressive as its nursing hours. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 73.3871 percent of its residents. We'd love to see some improvement herein this statistic next year. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. There are many criteria included in this grade. Many of the criteria are tied to nurse staffing. This facility boasts a really impressive 8.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day, of which a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. This is one of the higher totals of nursing hours we found at any facility. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. With below 5 percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category.

Grade: A-minus

Moving on to the fourth area, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care category. We awarded it a grade of A- for that area. This finalized truly elite report card. Our short-term care ratings are important for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home is above average in terms of both its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
