Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in this category. Our short-term care ratings are vital for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was long-term care. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in that category. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 95.29411 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
