Long-term Care Quality
This place really excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area. This salvaged its overall profile. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 78.67647 percent of its residents. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
We also wanted to emphasize this place's nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of B+ in this area. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good 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 impressive grade of D. There are a variety of datapoints within this category. Many of these subcategories relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category is short-term care, which is the final category we scored. It received an F for this area. In spite of a few decent scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we felt obligated to make sure you are aware. Our short-term care grades are vital for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. 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 looked at the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
