To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's more respectable category grades came in the category of long-term care. This turned out to be its second most respectable category. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In the area of long-term care, we weigh the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. We would have to do a bit more digging into this facility before expressing a stronger opinion on this category as it appears we are missing a few metrics in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities third most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is frequently a solid measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. When we looked at this facility's physical therapist hours, we found it offered more hours of physical therapy per day to its residents than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this is below average.
The next category we graded was nursing. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Nursing grades are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided just 3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
