This nursing home is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. The facility supplied roughly 50% more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical nursing home.

This facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not consider 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.

The final area we looked at is long-term care. This remarkable facility also dominated in this category, where we awarded it an A+. This wrapped up a perfect report card of A+'s. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
