As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had too many deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category scores came in the area of short-term care. This ended up being its second most favorable category. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home.

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. The nursing grade consists of quite a few datapoints, but the main one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular facility provided just 2.8 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below average. On top of ranking poorly in terms of nursing hours offered, this nursing home also lagged behind in certain metrics that are associated with quality of care. This place's nursing grade was pulled down by poor performance in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers. We found that 27.5 percent of this place's residents suffered from pressure ulcers. This is more than double the average nursing home. Since many pressure ulcers could be avoided with sufficient nursing protocols, we reduce a nursing home's nursing rating when we find this kind of prevalence of pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored was long-term care. This facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 86.66667 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit less than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place wasn't as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 1.86 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was not bad since it had more complicated patients.
