Short-term Care Quality
This facility received a favorable short-term care grade this year. We gave them a strong grade in that category, with a B+. This is a better grade than the facility's overall grade and was a boost to its overall profile. In calculating these short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
This facility also performed well in inspections. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with a score of B+. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. We analyzed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this area. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed is long-term care. We gave it an F for this area, which is a very poor score. This is certainly a major concern. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. We were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 80.729164 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
