While we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a relatively impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our more favorable scores in that category with a grade of B+. Inspection ratings are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this facility. Without having access to deficiency data, it was difficult to grade the place in the inspections category.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best score was short-term care, but it still earned a grade of just D in that area. This ended up being a well below average score. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this category, we weren't surprised to find this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in that category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information about vaccinations. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
The next area we analyzed was nursing, where this facility was given an abysmal grade here as well. It received an F for this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Our nursing grade considers a variety of data points. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. With only 2.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
