Short-term Care Quality
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care rating this year. We gave it a C in that category. Short-term care ratings are important for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 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.
Interestingly, this nursing home's terrible overall score can't really be attributed to its government inspection reports. We gave it a grade of C for our inspections category. Our inspection scores are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent danger to patient safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. There are a number of datapoints within this area. Most of these criteria are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final area, this nursing home really didn't fare well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 58.19672 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a bit less than average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
