Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home an A for our long-term care score. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category was short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we discovered that this nursing home provided less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that 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.
