Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With a score of this caliber in this area, we were not shocked to learn that this facility was below average in several staffing areas we assess. It provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 92.91667 percent of its residents. This is a few points less than we anticipated but still a respectable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
The next area we assessed was nursing. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. In determining our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
