Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Our short-term care grade is typically used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

The final area we scored was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in that area. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's personal care instead of the skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to only 89.47369 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.07 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
