While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that area, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without having access to information regarding deficiencies for this nursing home, it ended up being challenging to grade it in this category.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this nursing home an D. There are a number of datapoints included in this area. Most of these criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is slightly below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility was given just a D in that area. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. It does not appear that this facility provided information about vaccinations. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is short-term care, ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this facility a D in this category. Our short-term care scores are critical for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With its score in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
