It should be noted that this nursing home's inspection rating outpaced its overall score. In fact, we gave it a grade of B for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an B. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was above the national average. Lastly, this nursing home also performed even better in most of the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, it had a low rate of patients sustaining both pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In computing these short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final item we considered in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to judge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to track down this facility's vaccination rates. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
