This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We wish we had more data for this facility. Without having deficiency data, it is challenging to grade it in terms of this category.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a strong score in long-term care. This nursing home received a B in this area, which is one of our more favorable scores. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. This facility seems to have performed reasonably well in this category as far as we could tell, but we do want to point out that we seem to be missing some data on this facility's long-term care metrics.
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Our nursing grade considers a number of subcategories. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the last category, this facility was given a grade of C for short-term care, which is a respectable rating. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
