Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home an A- for our long-term care score. This grade is more impressive than its overall grade. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
This facility's inspection grade exceeded its overall grade as well. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a B. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Finally, we assessed the number of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
The next category we graded was nursing. For this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, while this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric.
