This nursing home earned a very strong long-term care rating. We gave this facility an A in this category, which bumped up its overall grade. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 92.816086 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we expected but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the last area, this nursing home did not perform well. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this was this nursing home's worst area. Our short-term care ratings are probably most meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.9 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.
