Long-term Care Quality
While this facility's overall grade was not favorable, it surprisingly earned a very good score in long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Honestly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
