Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to point out that this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility wound up receiving a bottom of the barrel grade in our long-term care area. It was given an F in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 84.38538 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
The final category we analyzed is nursing. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is a poor grade. Our nursing score is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
