Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is long-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is a poor grade. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 86.42384 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
