Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid facilities that had a long list of deficiencies. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Included in this nursing home's several abysmal grades was its F in the area of long-term care. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 98.907104 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home offered only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next area, this facility really didn't fare well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Given its weak score in this area, we were not surprised to find that this place provides significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
