We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care score. This is not an impressive grade. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Based on its score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was long-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 70.39711 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is quite a few points lower than the national average. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
