This nursing home earned favorable marks in the area of long-term care this year. We awarded them a solid grade in that area, with a B+. This ended up being the facility's top grade and helped its profile quite a bit. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This nursing home also earned a strong inspection grade. Inspection grades are based on the facility's recent health inspections. We gave this facility a B in this area.

Facilities that score well in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a solid score in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Turning to our next category, this facility received an acceptable nursing score of C. Nursing ratings are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
