While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. We were not able to track down deficiency data for this facility. We wish we had more data for this facility. Without having information regarding deficiencies, it ended up being a challenge to grade it in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility received its next highest category grade in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who 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 below the national average.
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. The nursing score includes several components, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at a few nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this subcategory.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is long-term care, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. One of the data points we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. It does not appear that this nursing home submitted information on its vaccination levels. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
