Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections rating. This score is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an C. Our nursing rating assesses quite a few subcategories, but the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed admirably in this datapoint.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a respectable grade in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In forming these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be a weak spot for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of just D in our long-term care category. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted vaccination data. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
