This nursing home vaccinated 92.1875 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is somewhat below what we anticipated but still a decent figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital.

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. There are a host of criteria within this area. Many of these datapoints reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

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. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of physical therapy per week to its residents. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. This place was respectable in this metric with 47 percent of its patients returning home.
