Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to find that this nursing home earned a reasonably solid long-term care rating this year. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. In determining our long-term care grades, we size up the assistance with daily living offered to a facility's residents. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98.1203 percent of its residents, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. The nursing score includes quite a few subcategories, however, the main one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed was short-term care. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in that area. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.
