Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's long-term care score was better than its overall score. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for its long-term care grade. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.59036 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In addition, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an B+. Few nursing homes performed as well in this category. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

When determining our nursing ratings, we factor in both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area.

Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest category is short-term care, which is the final category we looked at. We gave it an abysmal F in this category. Despite several acceptable grades in other areas, this score is still of a concern so we felt obligated to make a note of it. With our short-term care score, we seek to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We found that this facility was subpar in the two key staffing metrics we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
