This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. When computing our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This place provided just 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared with most nursing homes. In addition to ranking poorly in terms of nursing hours provided, this nursing home also lagged behind in certain metrics that are associated with quality of care. This nursing home's nursing grade was pulled down by poor performance in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers. We found that 16.1 percent of this nursing home's residents were suffering from pressure ulcers. This is at least double the average nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, we awarded this facility a grade of D in long-term care. This is the facility's worst category grade. Of course, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 72.94118 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was not as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 1.82 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic wasn't bad due to it having more complex patients.
