Long-term Care Quality
Although this facility's overall grade wasn't favorable, it surprisingly excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. This kept this nursing home from receiving an even worse overall grade. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 76.76349 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Surprisingly, this facility actually received a good grade in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Not many nursing homes that were this poor overall received multiple category grades of this caliber. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had a long list of severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category.

This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the final category, this facility did not perform very well here either. Due to a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more important for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
