Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home one of our better scores in long-term care, where it received an A-. This is a much better grade than its overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
We would also like to point out this facility's strong inspection grade. This facility earned a B in this category, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Our nursing grade analyzes several subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was short-term care, which proved to be this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is often a reliable assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. With a grade this poor for this category, we were not shocked to discover that this facility was well below average in the two key staffing figures we assess. The facility offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
