Nevertheless, with a grade of just D in this category, it still performed badly. We analyzed the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Unfortunately, this nursing home earned an F for its inspection score. This is a very important category. Grades in this range typically point to some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For places with bad inspection scores, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to patient safety or health.

The next category we analyzed is short-term care. This facility's received an abysmal short-term care grade where it was given an F. Our short-term care grade is often used to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. With its score in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is long-term care, where this facility received a poor score here as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 69.15888 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
