Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded just a D in that area. As it turns out, this ended up being one of its better features. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 93.40824 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is more often than not a meaningful assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
