Long-term Care Quality
This facility's best grade came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.44 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.
This nursing home actually earned a solid government inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it earned one of our better scores in that category with a score of B-. We were surprised this facility received multiple category grades of this caliber. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

This nursing home's third most favorable area turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a C. Short-term care grades are generally employed to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The last area we assessed is nursing. This nursing home received a C for the category. Nursing grades are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided just 2.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
