Long-term Care Quality
Even though this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it surprisingly received a very good score in the area of long-term care. We gave it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 70.134224 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is slightly below what we expected but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is a more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was short-term care, in which this facility received a rock bottom grade here also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Given its poor grade in this area, we were not surprised to find this facility provides significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
