We also awarded this nursing home a decent grade in the area of long-term care, with a grade of C. Our long-term care grade is used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 90.82126 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is significantly lower than what we expected.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home.
The next category we rated was nursing. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is an abysmal grade. Our nursing score is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This statistic is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
