Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This means inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's unfortunate short-term care score where it was given a lowly F. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. With its score in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
