Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home wound up receiving a a very poor score in our long-term care category. It received a lowly F in this area. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.93048 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility an F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are vital for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Based on its poor score in this area, we were not stunned to learn this place offers significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
The final category we graded is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a poor score. There are a variety of data points included in this grade. Most of the criteria reflect nurse staffing. This particular place provided a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This number is far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
