This facility's inspection grade also was better than its overall score. Due to a quality inspection report this year, it earned one of our better scores in that area with a grade of B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
The third best area we gave this facility in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are likely more critical for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Our next area is long-term care, where we awarded this facility a grade of C in that area. In our long-term care assessment, we look at the quantity of services provided by a nursing home, along with a handful of quality metrics. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
