Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care score and that actually turned out to be its next highest score. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.41987 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Turning to our fourth area, this nursing home really didn't perform well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is often a solid assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
