Registered Staff Hours
Although this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. Although this nursing home 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.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this nursing home received a solid long-term care grade in our assessment. We awarded it a C in that area. Long-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of nursing services. This means a vast range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development is the F this facility was given in the category of short-term care. In our short-term care score, we attempt to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.5 percent of its residents returning home.
The last category we graded was nursing. We gave it an F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Our nursing score is largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Clh Healthcare Center Quality Metrics
