Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to note the fact that this facility excelled in our long-term care category. We awarded them an impressive score of A+ in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the average nursing home.

In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is frequently a reliable assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Moving on to the final category, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable nursing grade. Even though this is not quite as good as a few of its other grades, this is really nothing to be ashamed of. There are a variety of factors included in this category. Most of these data points are tied to nurse staffing. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below the national average. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic.
