Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received a favorable short-term care score this year. We gave them a strong grade in that area, with a B+. This is a notably better grade than the nursing home's overall grade and was a boost to its overall profile. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is better than its overall grade. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without having information regarding deficiencies, it was a challenge to grade the place in this area.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few factors, but the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 60 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit lower than average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
