Registered Staff Hours
While this facility'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 ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home ended up receiving a an abysmal grade in our short-term care category. It received a lowly F in this area. Our short-term care grades are critical for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

The next area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in that category. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 77.89116 percent of its residents, which is not a very encouraging sign. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
