Long-term Care Quality
Surprisingly, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our long-term care rating, which is not a bad grade. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for residents in need of more traditional services related to personal care. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 96.666664 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The next category we assessed was nursing, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom score in this area also. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. Our nursing score includes a host of data points. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
