Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this place's overall performance, it did receive 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 B+. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid facilities that have a long list of deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's higher category grades came in the category of long-term care. This ended up being its second most respectable category. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.287415 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it received a C. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The last area we analyzed was nursing, was this facility's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that category. The nursing score includes numerous subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
