In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this nursing home's recent inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this facility a B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive scores. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.59 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing score. We gave this facility a grade of D. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. In this nursing home's case, quantity of care does not appear to be the problem. According to its CMS data, this nursing home provided an average of 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which was above the national average. Despite performing well in terms of nursing hours, this facility did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home was above the national average in both of these statistics.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category is short-term care, which is the final category we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area. Even with a few decent scores in other categories, this grade is still alarming so we wanted to make sure you are aware. With our short-term care rating, we strive to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Considering its poor rating in this area, we were not stunned to discover this facility provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 30.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
