We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this category with a grade of A+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility also was awarded a positive long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded them a B in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 98.05826 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. This facility was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 1.8 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than the majority of nursing homes due to it having some more complex patients.

This nursing home's third most favorable area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it received a B-. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. In addition to performing well in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it also fared well in this area with 56.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The next area we scored is nursing. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is obviously a major disappointment. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in determining our score in this area. This facility averaged just 3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. In addition to receiving below average scores for total nursing hours, this facility was less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and found this nursing home was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.
