Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst area was long-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category. In spite of multiple decent scores in other areas, this grade is still alarming so we felt obligated to point it out. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 83.18182 percent of its residents. This is several points below average. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
