Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall score, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of C in the area. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only earned a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is not one of our better scores. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 92.23301 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our short-term care category. This is the facility's worst category grade. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
