Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we awarded this facility a C for our short-term care score, which is not too bad of a score. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is generally a solid assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. We assessed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this category. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
