Long-term Care Quality
This facility really excelled in the area of long-term care. We awarded it a grade of A for that area. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 90.3125 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we were hoping for but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care, proved to be this facility's worst category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that category. This really is one of the few weak links on a strong report card. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This score is considered to be a meaningful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
