One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the amount of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 98.08917 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area.

We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality

Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.
