An A+ in this area is one of the highest complements we can pay to a facility. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is frequently a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. 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. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 92.708336 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
