Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our more favorable grades in that category with a B. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had a long list of severe deficiencies. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to discover that this nursing home received a decent long-term care grade in our assessment. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated just 63.97059 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Moving on to the category of short-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The final area we rated was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. The nursing grade is based on several data points, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings.
