This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection grades are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our higher grades. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 91.034485 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 1.78 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than the majority of nursing homes since it had some more complex patients.

Next we wanted to quickly point out one of this facility's major weaknesses. In the area of nursing care, we gave this nursing home a lowly grade of F. Our nursing rating is based on a handful of components, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. To go along with its low total nursing hours per patient, this nursing home had bad marks in many of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of patients sustaining falls leading to serious injury. This place was at more than 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the last category, this facility did not perform well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's worst category grade. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 41.3 percent of its residents returning home.
