Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home actually received an impressive short-term care score this year. We awarded it a B+ in this area. Our short-term care grades are probably most meaningful for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
We also gave this facility favorable marks in the area of nursing care, where it received a grade of B. Nursing scores are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our long-term care score. This is not an impressive grade. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 85.22727 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a bit lower than what we expected. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
Unfortunately, this facility did not receive a favorable inspection grade. We gave it a just D in this category. Inspection scores relate to a nursing home's inspections. One of the most critical factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 10 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
