Long-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this proved to be a strong nursing home is that it received a very impressive long-term care rating. In fact, this is its best category. In that area, we gave this facility an A+. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 88.43537 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning to another one of this place's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection rating. Inspections proved to be one of its best categories. We gave this nursing home an A-. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is not a bad grade in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
