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-. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't 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.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the category of short-term care. In forming these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Considering its grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the data we looked at. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. When computing a facility's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are with patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in that area. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 85.28302 percent of its patients. This is several points less than average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
