Registered Staff Hours
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a score of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 90 percent of its patients. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing grade weighs many components, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth area, we gave this facility a grade of D in short-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Unfortunately, this score hurt the facility's overall grade a bit. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
