In addition, we gave this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable grades. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 78.78788 percent of its residents, which is slightly lower than we expected. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Despite having 2.44 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most facilities since it had more complicated patients.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Nursing grades are largely based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also factored some quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This place was subpar in two of the major areas we look at, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are often good measures of the quality of nursing care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded was short-term care. This nursing home was given a grade of C for this category. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 34.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
