Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. We were not able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility also was elite in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A-. Very few facilities fared better in this area. For residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. Even though we determined this facility has a favorable quantity of nursing care provided by aids and other nursing staff, we found its vaccination rate to be a bit lower than we expected. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 58.024693 percent of its patients. This is one statistic we would love to see this nursing home improve. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

In the final category we assessed, this facility was awarded an impressive grade grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this score, the facility rounded out an elite profile. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation.

Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Remarkably, this nursing home provides roughly 50% more hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we assessed. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
