Long-term Care Quality
This facilities grades were terrible across the board. In particular, we wanted to draw your attention to its poor long-term care grade where it received an F. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated only 88.23529 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. With places that received this poor of an inspection grade, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility had a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by the government inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to residents. Finally, this facility also received 7 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

In our short-term care category, we seek to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. With a grade in this range in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in the two key staffing metrics we looked at. The facility supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
