Short-term Care Quality
Even though this nursing home's overall grade was abysmal, it didn't perform terribly in our short-term care rating. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which isn't bad. However, this wasn't enough to spare its profile. Short-term care grades are typically used to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
This facility really didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. We gave it a C for that category. Other aspects of its profile turned out to be the source of this facility's abysmal overall score. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. The lack of deficiencies was definitely this nursing home's greatest strength.
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 2.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this area also. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate this facility's vaccination rates. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
