Long-term Care Quality
This facility received favorable marks in the area of long-term care this year. We gave them a solid grade in that area, with a grade of B+. This ended up being the nursing home's top grade and boosted its profile a fair amount. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.1564 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Inspections is another area where this facility excelled. In fact, we awarded this facility an B+ for our inspections category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of D. Our nursing grade features numerous factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. 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 assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst area was short-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. It received an abysmal F for this category. In spite of multiple acceptable scores in other areas, this score is still of a concern so we would like to to point it out. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Given its score in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
