We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in this area with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second best category is its long-term care score, where it received a C. With our long-term care assessment, we weigh the volume of services offered by a facility, as well as a series of qualitative metrics. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Considering its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Turning to the next area, we gave this facility a grade of D in nursing. This was the nursing home's least impressive category grade. We weighed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this category. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
