This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home fared very well in our short-term care rating. We gave them an elite score of A+ in this category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is typically a solid measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. When calculating our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In the last category, this nursing home also received an impressive long-term care score, with a grade of A. This wrapped up an elite profile. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We weren't able to locate this facility's vaccination rates. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
