Long-term Care Quality
Adding to its elite profile, this nursing home also performed well in our long-term care area. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in the area. 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 amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The last category we looked at was nursing, in which this facility received a B-. This is this facility's least impressive area. This is still nothing to be ashamed of. There are many data points within this area. Most of the factors reflect staffing levels. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning residents more frequently.
