Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second most favorable area was long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a C. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 97.093025 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. The nursing score considers a host of datapoints. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This number is quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive area is short-term care, which is the last area we scored. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. In calculating our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is frequently a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. With a grade in this range in this category, we were not stunned to discover this facility was below average in two of the key staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it supplied far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
