Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this place's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's more respectable category grades came in the area of short-term care. This proved to be its second best category. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only received a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is well below average in this category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.34703 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable percentage. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
The next category we looked at is nursing, in which this facility was given a very poor grade in this area as well. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is obviously very concerning. When determining our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
