Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it earned a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. 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 end up being quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's next highest category was short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this category, it still performed somewhat poorly. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. With its abysmal score in this area, we were not stunned to find this place offers significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this facility's short-term care score.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing grades are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, this nursing home didn't fare well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 99.66443 percent of its residents, which is an above average figure. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
