Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is long-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. Naturally, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to only 90.625 percent of its patients, which is well below average. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
