Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a positive grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this area, which turns out to be one of our better grades. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below average. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in short-term care. This is the nursing home's worst category rating. Sadly, this score hurt the facility's overall profile a bit. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. We found that this place was subpar in many staffing metrics we focus on. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
