Long-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for our long-term care rating. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 93.023254 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This facility also performed well in the area of inspections. It earned a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. Few facilities with an overall grade in this range performed as well in multiple categories. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints.

Short-term Care Quality
The next best category we gave this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. With our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
The next area we scored was nursing. This facility was given an impressive nursing grade this year, with a C. While this is not as dominant as many of its other category grades, this is nevertheless a respectable grade for this category. We looked at the levels of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses spent with residents, in determining our score in this category. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
