Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility one of our higher scores in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A+. This is much better than the nursing home's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Turning to the category of nursing, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- in that area. In calculating our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second worse category is long-term care, where it received just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinates 98.88268 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Turning the last category of inspections, this facility really did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection category. This ended up really pulling this facility's overall score down as we heavily weight this category. When a facility has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular facility was hit with a category J through K deficiency, which are among the worst deficiencies. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This usually means that a bad track record has been an issue for several years.
