Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's best grade came in long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B+. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 71.01911 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we anticipated. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent grade in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a C. Short-term care grades are commonly used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
The next category we rated is nursing, is this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a D in this category. We weighed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with residents, in determining our rating in this area. 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
