We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this area with a grade of A. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Another one of this facility's better category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving patients at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
