These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's next best score was long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared somewhat badly. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated is short-term care, which was a weak link for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for short-term care. In calculating our short-term care scores, we size up a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is more often than not a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Considering its score in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we looked at. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this facility's short-term care score.
