Inspection scores are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to note that this facility received an F for its long-term care score. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. We were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 28.3237 percent of its patients.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. The nursing rating is based on a variety of subcategories. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is short-term care, where this facility was given a poor grade in this area also. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously very concerning. Our short-term care grade is typically used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
