In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility really fared well in our long-term care category, where it received an A-. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis.

This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.88732 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy.

Turning to another one of this facility's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. Inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. We awarded this nursing home an A-. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few datapoints, but the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below average. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused metrics. We like to look at the percentage of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These metrics are decent indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these issues.

Short-term Care Quality

Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility was awarded a grade of B- for short-term care, which is a decent rating. In calculating these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 35.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
