Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category.

Historical

This nursing home was awarded a favorable long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that area with a score of B+. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.1453 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.7 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

The final area we looked at is short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility an impressive grade of B. Our short-term care scores are critical for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
