We also found that this nursing home excelled in long-term care. We gave them an A+ in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are kept in good health. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.96373 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.49 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This place was hit with 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are caring for patients and the level of skill of those nurses. This place provided just 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most facilities. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving patients even once per day.

Historical

The last area we looked at is short-term care, which is this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. However, you should not assess this facility based solely on this area, since it was given many very strong scores in other categories. In determining our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is considered to be a solid measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
