We also wanted to note that this nursing home excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an A+ in this area. We weighed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in computing our score in this area. This place boasts a really impressive 6.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. This is one of the higher totals of nursing hours we were able to find. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in the nation in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Adding to an already impressive profile, this facility also received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. As a result, we awarded it an A+ inspection grade. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

The third category we looked at was long-term care. This facility was superb in our long-term care category also. We gave them an exemplary grade of A+ in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After considering the very impressive nursing care provided by this nursing home, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, 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 number.

Historical

Moving on to our fourth area, this nursing home also received an A+ short-term care score, making it one of just a handful of facilities to achieve four A+'s. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. This facility is above average in terms of both its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities in the country in this area with 63.3 percent of its residents returning home.
