Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to point out that this facility was given positive long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in this category, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 91.914894 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is slightly less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only received a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is not a score to write home about. Our short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Moving on to our fourth category, this nursing home didn't fare very well. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this was its poorest grade. The nursing grade assesses several components, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
