Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home an impressive grade in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our more favorable scores. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life threatening illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This nursing home received a strong nursing score as well. It received one of our better grades in that category with a score of F. We weighed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in determining our rating in this category. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated is short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is obviously concerning. Our short-term care grades are vital for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this area, we were not surprised to find this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing figures we assess. The nursing home offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
