Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category was its short-term care grade, where it received a grade of C. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home did not fare very well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 92.51497 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points below what we anticipated but still a decent percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
