This nursing home earned an elite long-term care rating. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A in this category, which really boosted its overall score. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.47716 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to avoid negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
We also wanted to emphasize this place's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of B+ in this area. Our inspection grades are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's inspections. Facilities that excel in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed.

The final category we assessed is short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D for our short-term care category, making this the facility's weakest area. Short-term care grades are critical for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either.
