Although we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that 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 few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 89.44954 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. In calculating our nursing scores, we weigh both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided a meager 3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. To pair with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this place had bad scores in several of the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining falls leading to serious injury. This nursing home was at more than 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this area. Our short-term care scores are important for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its weak rating in this category, we weren't shocked to learn that this place provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 28.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
