Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
While this place's overall score was abysmal, it didn't perform terribly in the area of short-term care. We awarded it a C for that category, which isn't bad. That said, this was not enough to save its otherwise poor profile. In determining our short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Interestingly, this nursing home's terrible overall grade can't really be attributed to its government inspection reports. We awarded it a C for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories J through L. This indicates inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to place patient safety or health in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing scores are largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our last area, this nursing home did not fare very well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 85.35032 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
