This nursing home's next best category is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-. In our long-term care score, we weigh the amount of care provided by a nursing home, along with a series of qualitative datapoints. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 92.51969 percent of its residents, which is somewhat less than we expected. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This nursing home's worst category was nursing, which is the final area we looked at. We gave it an F in this area. Even with a few solid grades in other areas, this score is still alarming so we wanted to make sure you are aware. Our nursing score is based on several subcategories, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
