Long-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.016396 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This facility also received an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the few facilities to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This is based on the place's inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Inspection scores are based on many items located in the a nursing home's government inspections. Places that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
This nursing home's worst category was nursing, which is the last category we assessed. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. We wanted to draw your attention to this possible weak spot, but you should not dwell on a single bad area either. The nursing score consists of several subcategories, most of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
