Grade: A-plus

In addition to earning a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an A+ short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are crucial for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation.

Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

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. Inspection grades are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Grade: A

Switching gears to the final area, this nursing home also excelled in the long-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that area. This finalized a straight A report card. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.039215 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
