In addition to faring well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that area with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category.

Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving patients more frequently.

Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Grade: B

The last area we analyzed was short-term care. We gave this facility one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B. Even though this is not as favorable as many of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless a positive score. In calculating our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is more often than not a reliable assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation.

Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
