Long-term Care Quality
This facility received a long-term care grade which is better than its overall grade. We gave this nursing home a grade of B+ in this area. This really boosted its overall profile. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.54902 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This facility also received a strong inspection score. Inspection grades are based on the nursing home's recent government inspections. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is a poor grade. This is clearly a significant disappointment. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With a grade this poor in this area, we weren't stunned to learn this nursing home was below average in several staffing areas we looked at. It offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
