Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only received a D for its short-term care grade, which is not one of our better scores. In determining our short-term care ratings, we size up the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This score is often a reliable assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we found that this place provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.3 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was long-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of D in long-term care. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated only 68 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
