Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care rating and that actually ended up being its next most favorable score. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more meaningful for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was long-term care. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 92.14876 percent of its patients, which is a few points less than we were hoping for. 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 had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
