Short-term Care Quality
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B for our short-term care grade. Short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our nursing score is largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second worse score was long-term care, where it received just a D in that area. This is a well below average score. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 90.114944 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
Looking to our final category of inspections, we gave this nursing home a grade of just just D, which is a relatively poor grade. Our inspection rating is based on the nursing home's inspections. Since this data is compiled by independent government inspectors, we place a great deal of weight on it in our overall grades. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 17 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
