We would like to point out that this facility's nursing rating exceeded its overall rating. This nursing home earned a B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Inspections is another category where this facility excelled. In fact, we gave this facility an B+ for our inspections category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this facility a grade of B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive scores. In determining our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is more often than not a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst category. It received a lowly F in this area, which is clearly concerning. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
