Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that area, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's higher category scores came in the category of long-term care. This ended up being its second most favorable category. In that category, we awarded this facility a C. In determining these long-term care grades, we look at the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 90.9434 percent of its residents, which is a bit below what we expected. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded a grade of just D in that category. In crafting our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Based on its abysmal grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
The final category we looked at was nursing, which turned out to be a low point for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our nursing category. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we consider the number of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This particular place averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This statistic is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
