Long-term Care Quality
This facility really fared well in the area of long-term care, where it received an impressive grade of A-. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.51923 percent of its residents, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections. It received one of our highest grades in that category with an B+. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L.

Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its poor rating in this area, we were not stunned to discover this facility provides substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.
The final category we scored is nursing, which was this facility's least impressive category. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is certainly concerning. There are quite a few subcategories within this area. Many of the factors reflect nurse staffing. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings.
