Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A-. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home ended up receiving a rock-bottom grade in our long-term care area. It was given a lowly F in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this nursing home vaccinated just 85.628746 percent of its patients, which is a bit of a concern. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing rating features numerous factors. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 measures in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel score here also. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our short-term care grades are presumably more critical for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.7 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
