Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home an A- for our long-term care grade. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.52381 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Inspections is another category where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we awarded this nursing home an B+ for our inspections category. This score is far more impressive than its overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is not a very good score. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
The next area we looked at was nursing. We awarded this nursing home a D for nursing, rendering this the nursing home's worst category.

This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
