Registered Staff Hours
While we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall grade, it did receive a respectable nursing score of B-. In calculating our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning residents even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest area turned out to be long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.460915 percent of its patients. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only earned a D for its short-term care rating, which is not a score to write home about. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.2 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
Moving on the final category of inspections, this ended up being this facility's weakest link. Inspection ratings are based on a nursing home's recent government inspections. We gave this facility a score of D in this category, which is a very weak grade. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines recently of more than $50,000. This generally indicates that CMS inspectors became fed up after several years of bad government inspections.
