This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally favorable view of this nursing home's inspections.
We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Our nursing score is mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 3.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest category turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is long-term care, which was a weak link for this facility. We awarded this facility a D in long-term care. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
