Grade: A+

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility also earned an A+ inspection rating. This grade is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. It doesn't look like we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This area is frequently a fair measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

This facility also performed well in the category of long-term care, where it received a score of A. Only a select group of nursing homes performed better in this category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis.

This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

There are a number of data points included in this grade. Many of these criteria are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
